Export the Passwords

You will first need to export the passwords from the browser or password manager from which you wish to import. This process creates a single CSV file that will be saved on your hard drive.


After completing the importing of your passwords into ByePass, you can choose to delete this saved CSV file.


You can choose to import into ByePass passwords saved in Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Safari, or from a variety of other password managers.

Export CSV file from a Web Browser

The following is an example of how to export a CSV file from Chrome. The steps for Firefox, Edge and Safari may differ slightly.  


To export a CSV file from Chrome:

  1. Type "chrome://flags" into your URL bar.
  2. Type Ctrl+F and type "Password import and export" into the search box.
  3. Enable this toggle.
  4. Relaunch your browser.
  5. Type "chrome://settings/passwords" into the URL bar (or navigate from Menu > Settings > Advanced Settings > Manage Passwords).
  6. Click the Export button. This exports your passwords as a plain-text CSV file.
  7. Choose a destination for the file and click Save.

Export CSV file from a Password Manager

Follow the export instructions in the password manager of your choice to save a CSV file from a password manager. Usually, the process will be somewhat as follows:

  1. File > Export Passwords > CSV format
  2. Enter the Master Password for the password manager you are exporting from.
  3. Choose a destination for the file and click Save.
