Data and backups

Move your passwords from Chrome to 1Password

You can transfer your passwords from Chrome into 1Password on

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

  • Your Chrome passwords will be converted into 1Password logins.
  • Only passwords will be imported. Credit cards, addresses, and other items will not be imported.

Chrome import is only available on and requires a 1Password account.

Step 1: Export your data from Chrome

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. Then follow these steps:

  1. Click the Chrome menu    in the toolbar and choose Settings.
  2. Click Passwords.
  3. Click    above 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 if asked.
  5. Save the file to your desktop.

Step 2: Import your data into 1Password

To import your data on

  1. In Chrome or another browser, sign in to your account on
  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 and select the CSV file you saved to your desktop earlier.

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

After you’ve imported your information into 1Password, delete the unencrypted CSV file, and 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:

  1. Turn off the built-in password manager in Chrome.
  2. Make sure your passwords are in 1Password, then delete your passwords from Chrome.
