Does anki accept bin format to open a deck?

Hello, I would like to know if Anki accepts this bin format to open decks, thank you

What’s the bin format? Can you give more details? The .bin extension is commonly used for generic binary files.

a bin extension, I would like to know if it is possible to open an Anki deck in this file format

It’s not possible. Maybe we can offer some options if you give more details about the format & where you got the file from.

in fact it was a person who was trying to send me the file, so I thought it was strange, that’s why I asked the question, it could be a virus then

I recommend not trying to open the file if you don’t trust the sender.


If you trust the person, and they were trying to send you an Anki deck, then you could try renaming the file to .apkg from .bin and seeing if Anki can import it.
