Summary (IA Generated)

If you’re moving from LastPass (or another password manager you’re dissatisfied with), you may be tempted to simply go with the password manager that comes with your browser or operating system.

The only way to do it that I could find was to try to enable a disabled Chrome feature that allows you to import passwords.

I am currently running version 88, and while I was able to use the following method to add the import command to Chrome (thank you to Guiding Tech for pointing me toward this possible solution), my copy of Chrome was never able to actually import the CSV file I had downloaded from LastPass.

I’ll let you know how I finally managed to get my passwords into Chrome right afterward.

” Now that you’ve added the import function, go to to your Chrome Settings (by selecting the three dots in the upper right corner and choosing “Settings”).

Look for “Saved Passwords,” and click on the three dots on the right.

” Chrome should now have an Import selection under Saved Passwords.

” You’ll be able to select a CSV file from your file manager — and hopefully, import your passwords.

If not, then there is a last desperate way to get your passwords into Chrome, which is the one that finally worked for me.

Click on the three lines in the upper right corner and select “Logins and Passwords.

” Click on the three dots in the upper right corner and select “Import from a File.

” Select your CSV file and import it.

Firefox has no qualms about importing a CSV password file.

In Chrome, click on the three dots in the upper right corner and go to “Bookmarks” > “Import Bookmarks and Settings.

” Select Mozilla Firefox in the drop-down menu, select “Passwords” (and “Autofill form data” if you had any), and click on “Import.

” Chrome has no problem importing passwords from rival browsers.
