Data and backups

Move your passwords from Chrome to 1Password

You can transfer your passwords from Chrome into 1Password on 1Password.com.

1Password can import your passwords from Chrome. When you import from Chrome:

  • Your Chrome passwords will be converted into 1Password Login items.
  • Only passwords will be imported. Credit cards, addresses, and other information won’t be imported.

Step 1: Export your data from Chrome

Important

Before you export your data from Chrome, temporarily turn off any backup software you may be using, so the unencrypted export file isn’t backed up.

To export your data from Chrome, follow these steps on your computer:

  1. Click the Chrome menu   in the toolbar and choose Settings.
  2. Click Autofill > Password Manager.
  3. Click   at the top right of the list of saved passwords and select “Export passwords”.
  4. Click “Export passwords” and enter the password you use to log in to your computer.
  5. Save the Chrome Passwords.csv file to your desktop.

Step 2: Import your data into 1Password

To import your data on 1Password.com:

  1. In Chrome or another browser, sign in to your account on 1Password.com.
  2. Click your name in the top right and choose Import.
  3. Click Chrome.
  4. Choose the vault you want to import your data into. If you’re importing personal data, choose the Personal or Private vault.
  5. Click inside the dotted rectangle to open a file browser. Browse to your desktop and select the CSV file you created earlier.
  6. Click Import, then click Show Imported Items.

If you want to change anything about the import, like importing the data into a different vault, click Undo Import and start again.

If you have any credit cards, addresses, or other information saved in Chrome, copy them manually into 1Password. Open 1Password on your computer or mobile device and click the button to add items.

After you’ve imported your information into 1Password, delete the unencrypted CSV file, then turn on any backup software you turned off earlier.

Step 3: Turn off the built-in password manager in Chrome

To prevent Chrome from interfering with 1Password, make sure you have the 1Password browser extension installed, then turn off the built-in password manager in Chrome.

Step 4: Delete your passwords from Chrome

Chrome will continue to fill saved passwords even after you turn off the built-in password manager. To fill your passwords with 1Password instead of Chrome, delete your saved passwords from Chrome.

Important

Following these steps will permanently delete your passwords from Chrome, and you won’t be able to recover them. Make sure all your passwords from Chrome are saved in 1Password before you delete them.

To delete all your passwords at once:

  1. Click the Chrome menu   in the toolbar and choose More Tools > Clear Browsing Data.
  2. Select the Advanced tab, then click the “Time range” menu and choose “All time”.
  3. Select “Passwords and other sign-in data” and deselect every other option.
  4. Click “Clear data”.

To delete your passwords individually:

  1. Click the Chrome menu   in the toolbar and choose Settings.
  2. Click Autofill > Password Manager.
  3. Click   beside each saved password you want to delete, then select Remove.
