[Win/2.0.178.0] Import passwords from Chrome?

Postby littlebigman » Wed Sep 26, 2012 5:39 pm

Hello

The archives didn't return much.

To migrate from Chrome to Iron, there's the need to import all the saved passwords for the different sites on which we have accounts. Can Iron do this?

Thank you.

3 ways

1.sync your passwords, bookmarks with your gmail account, then you will have all you want in iron (synchronize also iron to the same gmail account)

2. go to:
C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

copy the file "Login Data"

then put it in the iron folder:

C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Default

3. using the extension LastPass in chrome and in iron

Thanks for the help.

I have another question: Before dumping Chrome, I wanted to check that everything I need works in Iron, so downloaded and used the portable version.

Now, I installed the regular Iron (with an installer), and would like to copy the Profile folder of the portable version so that I don't lose all I did since I started using the portable version, but searching for "iron" found no location in XP's "C:\Documents and settings".

Where should I put the portable version's Profile folder so that I can resume using Iron with the installer version?

Thank you.

Looks like I found it: Iron's data are actually saved here:

C:\Documents and Settings\Fred\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\

I just replaced everything in .\User Data\Default with the data available in the portable version's Default\folder, and started the installer version.
