How to Import Your Google Chrome History, Passwords, More to Safari and iCloud KeyChain
If you have used Safari on your MacBook, you might have noticed that your laptop's battery drains faster. In addition, the fans start to whirr as more heat is produced whether you open a single tab on Chrome or more. On a MacBook, you should make Safari your default browser in order to keep things smooth and so the laptop can give you a few extra hours before the battery is entirely drained. If you're encountering the same problem, it's best that you shift to Safari. Also, you can import Google Chrome Passwords, History, and more to Safari and iCloud Keychain.
Import Google Chrome Passwords on Mac Along With History and Bookmarks
There's a very good reason to shift from Google Chrome to Safari. Yes, Apple's Safari browser might not be as feature-rich as Google Chrome, but it makes use of the resources well. For an ideal browsing experience, it is vital that you import Chrome passwords, history, and more to Safari.
Even if you don't use Safari as your default browser, you should still import Google Chrome's passwords, history, and more. This is due to the fact that the imported passwords, history, and other stuff are stored in the iCloud Keychain. What this means is that you can access them through your iPhone, iPad, and iPod as well on Safari.
If you're unfamiliar, here's how you can do it on your MacBook.
1. The first thing that you have to do is launch Safari on your Mac.
2. Now, go to File > Import From.
3. Select Google Chrome from the options.
4. A dialogue box will appear, select Passwords, History, Bookmarks. Basically, you can select anything that you want to import.
5. Now, tap on Import and then you will be required to enter your Mac's password. Also, press "Always Allow" which will eliminate the need to enter your password every time.
That's all there is to it, folks. Check Safari after a few minutes to ensure if the passwords and everything is imported from Chrome. There's not much that you are required to do and the process is fairly simple. So do give it a shot.
