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.

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 Settings and then Autofill and then Password Manager.
  3. On the right, next to "Add," select More More and then Import passwords and then Choose 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 with access to 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

After you import your passwords, you can check whether they're exposed in a data breach or potentially weak and easy to guess. Learn more about how to manage your passwords.
