Import passwords with Chrome

You can import passwords from other apps to Google Password Manager on Chrome.

Step 1: Export your passwords as a .csv file

Important: You can only import passwords in the .csv file format to Google Password Manager. To export passwords as a .csv file from a non-Google app, refer to that app's documentation.

For instructions on how to export passwords, go to the following helpful resources:

Tip: To make sure your passwords use the proper format, check if the first line of your exported passwords file includes these column names:

  • “url”
  • “username”
  • “password”

If not, update your file to include "url", “username", and "password" as column names in the first line.

Step 2: Import passwords

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. On the top right, select More More and then Passwords and autofill and then Google Password Manager and then Settings.
  3. Under "Import passwords," click Select file.
  4. Choose the .csv file you want to import.
  5. To complete your import, follow the on-screen instructions.

Tip: You can import 3,000 passwords at a time. If you must import more than 3,000 passwords, split them into multiple .csv files and import the files separately. You can store up to 10,000 passwords in your Google Account.

Step 3: Delete your .csv password file

Important: If you don’t delete your password file, anyone who uses the device can open the file and access your passwords.

To delete your password file, refer to your device’s documentation.

Check for unsafe passwords
