Import Data from macOS & Safari

Use this article for help exporting data from Safari or macOS and importing into Bitwarden.


Exporting passwords requires Safari 15.0+ or macOS Monterey (12.0)+.

Export from Safari or macOS

You can export your passwords directly from Safari or from macOS System Preferences:

Import to Bitwarden

Importing data to Bitwarden can only be done from the Web Vault or CLI. Data is encrypted locally before being sent to the server for storage. To import your data:

  1. In the Web Vault, select Tools from the top navigation bar.

  2. Select Import Data from the left-hand Tools menu.

  3. From the format dropdown, choose Safari and macOS (csv).

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


    Import to Bitwarden can't check whether items in the file to import are duplicative of items in your Vault. This means that importing multiple files will create duplicates of Vault items if that item is alread in the Vault.

  5. Select the Import Data button to complete your import.

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

Currently, file attachments are not included in Bitwarden import operations and will need to be uploaded to your Vault manually. For more information, see File Attachments.
