How to import your passwords into Chrome and the Google Password Manager

One of the reasons these built-in password managers don’t stand up to their independent competitors is how difficult it was to get pre-existing passwords into their systems. However, that may change.

If you tend to hang out in the Google ecosystem and/or if you have an Android mobile device, that means you can use the Google Password Manager to store and sync your passwords through the Chrome browser . However, until recently, Google Chrome made it extremely difficult to import passwords from a CSV file. However, now it is quite simple.

Go to Settings to import your CSV password file into Chrome.

This is a lot easier than the previous workarounds I’ve tried to import a CSV file into Chrome. For the sake of historical interest, here’s what you used to have to do to get your passwords into Chrome’s password manager:

The only way I could find to do this was to try enabling a disabled Chrome feature that allows you to import passwords. After searching online, I found different methods to enable this depending on what version of Chrome you’re using. I’m currently running version 88 and although I was able to use the following method to add the import command to Chrome (thanks to Guidance of technique for pointing out this possible solution), my copy of Chrome was never able to import the CSV file I downloaded from LastPass.

Anyway, here’s the process I used. I’ll let you know how I finally managed to get my passwords into Chrome right after.

Chrome’s Experiments page is where you can enable the Import feature.

Chrome should now have an import selection under Saved Passwords.

If that works for you – great! If not, there’s a last-ditch way to get your passwords into Chrome, which ended up working for me.

Firefox has no problem importing a CSV password file.

Now that your passwords are in Firefox, you can easily transfer them to Chrome:

Chrome has no problem importing passwords from rival browsers.
