Looking to switch your Google Chrome data to Safari web browser? Well, the process of transferring Chrome data to the Safari browser is straightforward. You can transfer your login details, saved bookmarks, and passwords between the two browsers easily, but through the right steps.
After the new macOS version improvements, Mac and its apps have received plenty of new and useful features. The built-in translation languages, startup page customization, and a few more cool features are not part of the device. If a user was before a Google Chrome user, but now willing to transfer their important browser data to Safari, then they must know how to do it. Chrome and Safari both are different web browsers and both have different settings and features. So if necessary, follow the guide and transfer the login details, passwords, and bookmarks from Chrome to Safari.
How to Transfer Chrome Data to Safari Browser on Mac
Launch Google Chrome on Mac and open Settings>Password, or copy-paste “chrome://settings/passwords” in the search bar.
In the Saved Password, tap on the triple-dots.
Press on the Export Passwords option.
In the small pop-up display, press the Export Password once again.
In the next step, users will have to type Mac’s admin password.
Type the Username and Password and press OK.
Open Safari on Mac.
Press the File option from the Menu bar.
In the following menu options, choose the Import From option and press Google Chrome to move further.
Here users will have to choose the files and items to import.
Check everything must be imported in Safari and press Import in the last.
Now type the keychain password to start the import data process.
Once the import data is finished, users will be notified on the screen.
Press OK on Safari browser.
So this is everything a user must do to export passwords, login details and bookmark details from one browser to another. However, if a user wants to export more data like browse history, bookmarks, and autofill data, they can follow the same procedure on Chrome. The only thing users must remember is that they need to check all the boxes to export other data.
Similar to Chrome, if anyone is using Mozilla Firefox, they will need to follow the same procedure to import their bookmarks, passwords and login details to Safari browser. The biggest reason to switch from Chrome is its performance. After the launch of the new macOS version, a lot of things have been improved in Safari which makes it a better web browser than Chrome.
Apple also claims that now Safari browser can load frequently opened websites 50% faster than the Chrome browser. The battery consumption by Safari browser is also reduced, which is why now users can stream on Safari browser longer.
The new version of macOS has brought plenty of improvements and new features which are making the users switch to Apple apps rather than any third-party apps. One of the biggest changes came into Safari browser privacy. Mac users can now control the visiting websites, and stop them to track their location and other important data.
