Import your data from Google Chrome

Importing your data from Google Chrome into bitwarden is easy.

Note

The process is exactly the same for Opera and Vivaldi browser users.

Export your Chrome passwords

  1. Open Chrome and enter chrome://flags/#password-import-export into the address bar and press enter. This will open the Chrome system flags page.
  2. Look for the Password import and export option and change the dropdown option to Enabled.
  3. A prompt will pop up from the bottom asking you to Relaunch Now. Click the button to restart the browser so that the changes can take effect.
  4. After relaunching the browser, enter chrome://settings/passwords into the address bar and press enter. This will open a page with all your Saved Passwords for Chrome.
  5. Locate the Import and Export buttons at the top of the Saved Passwords list.
  6. Click the Export button. You may be prompted to enter your computer’s password for authorization.
  7. You’ll then be prompted to save your passwords to a CSV file on your computer. Save this file to your desktop as chrome_passwords.csv.

Import your passwords into bitwarden

  1. Go to the bitwarden web vault and log in.
  2. Navigate to ToolsImport.
  3. Select Chrome (csv) as the file format and select your chrome_passwords.csv file from the desktop that you created in step 7 above.
  4. Click the Import button.

Congratulations! You have just transferred all of your data from Google Chrome into bitwarden.
