What is the point of the Password Manager in the desktop app?

I have a working Browser password manager in chrome that syncs across all my devices. When I open the desktop app, under privacy, password manager settings there are options for wallets/vaults. I have tried exporting to csv from the browser and importing it into the desktop version but nothing every happens. I double click the csv on import and no passwords go into the vault I created on the desktop?


  • Hello @EternalTide,

    When opening the Bitdefender interface, are you referring to the Password Manager under Privacy? I'm asking because this is actually the previous Wallet module that is included by default in your subscription. The settings made here will not be applied to the Password Manager, as they are different products.

    Unfortunately, the terminology has created some confusion and the developers will rename this module to accurately reflect the Wallet definition. Here are the main differences between the two:

    The main difference is the multiplatform password synchronization. Password Manager is a standalone software compatible with Windows, Android, macOS, and iOS, while the Wallet is a password manager module with basic functionality that comes with our paid security solutions Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, Bitdefender Internet Security, Bitdefender Total Security. The Wallet is available only on Windows and does not work on Mac, Android, or iOS devices.

    Wallet integrates with the following Windows browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Bitdefender Safepay. Unlike Password Manager, the Wallet does not offer master password recovery options: if you forget your Master Password you lose all your passwords. Wallet functions are limited to autosave & autofill, auto-lock, and a password generator. You can import data from other password management applications only in .db and .csv format.

    On the other hand, Bitdefender Password Manager works with Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Safari across Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS. If you forget your master password, you can always reset it and regain access to your data. It has a plethora of bonus features that increase your privacy: autosave & autofill, password generator, password quality check, search & delete password duplicates, (un)hide passwords as you type them, security reports, password leak alert, secure notes, remote logout, biometric unlock on mobile devices. You can import data from other password management applications in multiple formats: csv, json, xml, txt, 1pif, fsk.

    I have noticed you are also using our latest Password Manager. You can find more supporting documentation in our dedicated section here.

    I hope this information is helpful.

    Best regards.
