How Can I Import Safari Passwords Into Password Manager?

edited December 2022 in Password Manager

I'm trying to get Password Manager (PM) up and running on my Macbook Pro. When I follow the steps to import data into PM from a browser it does not give Safari as an option in the file list. Am I missing something? Are Safari Passwords called something else? Is there a simple (non-geek) way to do this? I'd appreciate any advice.

    "Bitdefender can seamlessly transfer data only from the applications mentioned below in CSV, JSON, XML, TXT, 1pif, and FSK format. Here’s the full list, in alphabetical order:

    1Password, Bitwarden, Bitdefender Password Manager, Bitdefender Wallet, Bitwarden, ByePass, Chrome browser, Claro, Dashlane, Edge browser, ESET Password Manager v2, ESET Password Manager v3, F-Secure, Firefox browser, Gestor de contraseñas – Claro, Gestor de contraseñas – SIT, Gestor de contraseñas – Telnor, KeePass 2.x, LastPass, Panda Dome Passwords, PassWatch, Saferpass, SFR Cybersécurité, SIT, StickyPassword, Telnor, Watchguard."

    Since Safari is not listed, you should follow the instructions in this article:

    Also, the latest version of Password Manager supports the following web browsers:

    Microsoft Edge: (based on Chromium 80 and later) on Windows 7 and later

    Mozilla Firefox: version 65 on Windows 7 and later

    Google Chrome: version 72 on Windows 7 and later

    Safari**: version 12 on Windows 7 and later

    * System performance may be affected on devices that have old generation CPUs

    ** Coming soon

    @Alexandru_BD Anything to add here? Thanks.


  • Hi,

    Nothing to add here, let's see if @TC1959 can import data successfully, if not, we'll ask the engineers for further advice.


  • Thank you very much for your prompt responses Gjoksi and Alexandru_BD.

    I've looked at the workaround you suggested but I think given my browsing is always done on Safari and BitDefender Password Manager doesn't seamlessly support Safari then it is not the password solution for me. I will take advantage of the "refund inside 30 days" option.

    Disappointing because I use BitDefender across all my family's devices for protection and extending that to password protection seemed an easy solution. But we're an all Mac/iPhone/iPad family using Safari across those devices and buying into a password manager that doesn't naturally support the Safari browsing environment makes no sense.

    Again, thank you for your offers of support.

  • I know this comment is a little late, but I wonder if my idea would work. I am also only an Apple person and use Safari to browse on my Macs. Would a work around be importing passwords FROM safari into another supported browser such as Firefox, then importing those same passwords into password manager from the supported browser?
