How Do I Import my Passwords from Chrome to Shift? print icon

We developed a solution for you to move all of your passwords from Google Chrome to Shift. Your Chrome passwords will be seamlessly converted into logins for everything you do in Shift! 🤩

This feature is available for all users of Shift (Shift Advanced, Shift for Teams, and Shift Basic). Credit card and address importing is not yet available in Shift.

Passwords can be imported into Shift using two different processes. Both methods will lead to the same result. 

Method 1: Import from your App Menu

  1. Click on your app menu at the top of your Shift window
    If this menu is not exposed please click Ctrl + \ to reveal it.

  2. Select History to reveal a drop-down menu
  3. Click on Import 
  4. Ensure you are importing from Chrome and check the box for Passwords and/or History 
    Clicking the checkbox entitled “Backup & Sync Passwords” will store a copy of your encrypted passwords in our vault service. 
  5. Click Import and enter the password you use to log in to your computer. 

Method 2: Import from Settings

  1. Open your Options menu by clicking the three dots in the bottom left-hand corner

  2. Click on Settings (wrench icon) 

  3. Navigate to Passwords
  4. Select Settings 
  5. Click on Import from Browser 
  6. Ensure you are importing from Chrome and check the box for Passwords and/or History 
    Clicking the checkbox entitled “Backup & Sync Passwords” will store a copy of your encrypted passwords in our vault service. 
  7. Click Import and enter the password you use to log in to your computer. 

Congratulations! Your passwords have been successfully imported into Shift 🎉
