Couldn't import Chrome passwords and extensions to Opera GX

  • Upon testing, I couldn't find an option to import Chrome passwords and extensions, only bookmarks. I tried searching for tutorials but none useful so far. It is critical before I decide if I want to migrate over as a default browser. Mass browser migration is coming and I think it should be as easy as a customer onboarding process. Please advise.

  • @mleong If opera://settings/importData doesn't help, you can export your passwords in Chrome and import them in Opera in opera://settings/passwords.

    Extensions can't be imported.

  • Thank you so much. So, here's my experience.

    Importing bookmarks:
    The first link opera://settings/importData worked for importing Chrome bookmarks straightaway with no trouble provided if you have already signed in to your Google Chrome account in Opera GX.

    Importing passwords:
    The second link opera://settings/passwords however, did not work for me until I found another thread that says you have to do an extra step to trigger it. So here's what I did.
    I punched in opera:flags#PasswordImport and "Enable" it, then press "Relaunch" when a dialog box pops up. After it relaunched, go to opera:settings/passwords again and there the 3-horizontal-dots symbol on the right of "Saved Passwords" will appear, click and select "Import", then select your .csv file that you've exported from Chrome.
