Import Data from Google Chrome

Use this article for help exporting data from Google Chrome and importing into Bitwarden.

tip

The steps in this article can also be used with any Chromium-based browser, including Opera, Microsoft Edge (Chromium), Brave, and Vivaldi.

Export from Chrome

You can export Google Chrome data from a desktop browser or a mobile browser:

To export passwords from Chrome on your desktop:

  1. Using the address bar, navigate to chrome://settings/passwords.

  2. Select the menu button in the saved passwords section, and select Export passwords... from the dropdown.

    You may be prompted to enter your computer's password for authorization.

  3. Specify a location to save your export to, and select comma-separated values from the Format: field.

  4. Select Save to finish exporting from Chrome.

To export passwords from Chrome on your mobile device:

  1. Tap the menu button and tap Settings.

  2. Tap Passwords.

  3. Tap Export Passwords.

    You may be prompted to enter your device PIN or a biometric for authorization.

  4. Specify a location to save your export to.

Import to Bitwarden

Data must be imported to Bitwarden from the web vault or CLI. Data is encrypted locally before being sent to the server for storage.

To import data to your vault:

  1. Log in to the web vault at https://vault.bitwarden.com, or https://your.bitwarden.domain.com if self-hosting.

  2. Select Tools from the top navigation bar.

  3. Select Import Data from the tools menu.

  4. From the format dropdown, choose a file format.

  5. Select Choose File and add the file to import or copy/paste the contents of your file into the input box.

    warning

    Importing does not check whether items in the file to import already exist in your vault. If you import multiple files or import files with items already in your vault, this will create duplicates.

  6. Select Import Data to trigger the import.

  7. After successful import, delete the import source file from your computer. This will protect you in the event your computer is compromised.

File attachments will need to be manually uploaded to your vault.

To import data to your vault from the CLI, use the following command:

bw import <format> <path>

bw import requires a format (use bw import --formats to retrieve a list of formats) and a path, for example:

bw import lastpasscsv /Users/myaccount/Documents/mydata.csv

After successful import, delete the import source file from your computer. This will protect you in the event your computer is compromised.
