New Feature: Automatically Import Passwords from Browsers

Did you know that your favorite browser might be storing your valuable passwords? This may be convenient, but not all browsers can guarantee the safety of your sensitive data. That’s why NordPass has designed a new feature — a quick and easy import of your passwords from your favorite browsers straight to NordPass’s encrypted vault.

How will automatic password import work?

When you launch NordPass for the first time, the app will scan Chrome and Firefox browsers to identify whether they secretly store your passwords. Once the scanning process is complete, a message will appear, notifying you how many passwords you have saved and where. With a few clicks of a button, you can transfer these passwords to your NordPass vault.

How to import passwords from Chrome and Firefox

  1. Download NordPass and launch it on your computer.

  2. Let NordPass do its job. You should see an automatic pop-up indicating how many passwords are stored in your browsers and which browsers store them. Select Import Passwords. You may be asked to enter your computer password to allow the transfer.

  3. On the next screen, you’ll see all the passwords NordPass has found. You can pick and choose the ones you’d like to transfer or simply select them all. Click Import.

  4. That’s it! Your passwords should now appear under All Items.

Last piece of advice

Once you finish transferring your passwords, we recommend deleting them from your browsers. You can read more about how browser password managers compare to dedicated products, like NordPass.
