Share This:

Safari makes it easy to store and access your passwords for all the websites you visit. However, if you’re new to Safari, or just recently switched from another web browser, you may be wondering how to import your passwords from that other browser into Safari.

Fortunately, it’s easy! All you need to do is open Safari and select File > Import From > [Name of Browser]. For example, if you are switching from Chrome, select “Import From Google Chrome.” Then follow the simple instructions that appear on the screen.

Once the import is complete, all of your stored passwords in the other browser will now be available in Safari as well. You can find them by clicking on the Passwords icon in the toolbar at the top of your screen. From there, you can view a list of all your saved passwords and edit or delete any that are no longer needed.

Importing your passwords from another web browser into Safari is quick and easy – and it ensures that all of your important login information is in one place. So if you’re switching browsers or just want to make sure all of your passwords are organized and secure, give it a try!

Transferring Safari Passwords to a New Mac

Transferring your Safari passwords to a new Mac is easy! First, open Keychain Access on the old Mac. Then, select Edit > Select All from the top menu. Next, press and hold the Option key and drag the selected keychains into another folder to copy them to the folder. Finally, transfer the folder containing the keychains to your new Mac. Once you’ve done that, open Keychain Access on the new Mac and select File > Add Keychain from the top menu. Select your exported keychains file and click Open. The passwords will now be imported into your new Mac!

Importing Passwords into a Mac

To import passwords into your Mac, you’ll need to use the Keychain Access app. To do this, open the Keychain Access app on your Mac and choose File > Import Items. Navigate to the keychain items file containing the passwords you want to import, select it, then in the Destination Keychain pop-up menu, choose the keychain you want to import them to. Finally, click Open and your passwords should be imported into your Mac.

Importing Passwords to an iPhone

To import passwords to your iPhone, you will need to have saved them in a secure password manager. You can use the built-in Keychain app on iOS or download a third-party password manager such as LastPass or 1Password. Once you have saved your passwords in the password manager, follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
2. Tap Passwords & Accounts and then select AutoFill Passwords.
3. Select the password manager from which you want to import passwords and enter any necessary login information (such as your username and master password).
4. Toggle on “Allow Filling from” and select either iCloud Keychain or the third-party password manager you chose (e.g., LastPass).
5. Your passwords should now be imported to your iPhone!

Transferring Passwords to a New Mac

Yes, you can transfer passwords to a new Mac. The best way to do this is by using the Setup Assistant when migrating your data to the new Mac. This will automatically transfer your keychains, which contain saved passwords, to the new computer. If you prefer to manually move your keychains, you can copy the keychain file from one computer to another and then import it with Keychain Access on the new Mac.

Syncing Safari Passwords Between Devices

To sync Safari passwords between devices, you need to turn on iCloud Keychain. On your Mac, open the System Settings (or System Preferences) and click your name, then click iCloud. Make sure the box next to Password & Keychain is checked. Once that’s done, you can access all of your saved passwords and autofill information across all of your Apple devices that are signed into the same Apple ID. Additionally, you’ll be able to generate strong passwords on one device and use them on another.

Importing Passwords into Safari on iPhone

To import passwords into Safari on your iPhone first make sure that iCloud Keychain is turned on both on your iPhone and Mac. To do this, go to Settings > Profile > iCloud > Keychain on your iPhone. Once iCloud Keychain is enabled, open the Safari browser and select the Passwords option. Then click on Import and follow the prompts to select and upload the passwords you exported from Chrome. After the passwords have been imported successfully, they will be available for use in Safari.

Transferring Passwords to a New iPhone

It’s possible that your passwords didn’t transfer to your new iPhone because AutoFill Passwords is not turned on. To check if AutoFill Passwords is turned on, you’ll need to go to the Settings app and look in the Passwords & Accounts section (iOS 12 or 13) or the Safari section (iOS 10 or 11). Once you’ve confirmed that AutoFill Passwords is turned on, try setting up your accounts again. If this doesn’t work, it’s possible that the passwords were not backed up with your other data. You can manually enter any missing passwords on your new device.

Exporting Passwords from Safari

Yes, you can easily export passwords from Safari. Simply open the Safari app on your Mac and then go to File > Export > Passwords. Click ‘Export Passwords’ and then enter a name and choose a location for the CSV file. Click ‘Save’ and then enter the login password for your Mac. Once you have exported the passwords, you can import the CSV file into another browser.


In conclusion, Safari’s import password feature is a great way to securely transfer your passwords between devices. It ensures that your passwords are encrypted and safe while allowing you to quickly access them on any device. With this feature, you can easily move your passwords from one device to another without having to remember each one. This can save you time and help ensure that your data remains secure.
