Hello,

i just wanted to import a csv passwordfile that i created in the edgebrowser in the same edgeinstallation. The export was easy and i couldnt chose any filetyp. It automatically made an csv export. When i wanted to import this file i cant chose csv in the importmenue anymore. weeks ago it worked fine, now i cant chose to import csv files at all.

I tried to aktivate the import via edge://flags #PasswordImport , but the passwordimport option isnt under flags anymore too.

How can i now import the passwordfile?

    Hi,
    I have the same issue. It seems that "edge://flags#PasswordImport" does not exist anymore and even ExportPassword flag! So, you are not able to import passwords from csv file anymore which is a huge feature loss.
    It can be a reason for switching back to Safari or Google Chrome again.

    Hi @Lord Spanien

    Which version of Edge do you use? I searched and found a similar thread: Password import edge not working. From the replies below, it seems that it's a known issue of Edge in the latest Stable channel. I think edge://flags#PasswordImport disappearing is caused by Edge update. For now, I suggest that you can provide feedback about this issue to Edge team by pressing Alt+Shift+I in Edge. They will check the feedback and improve the product continuously.

    As a workaround, you can first go to passwords.google.com in Chrome to import the csv file. Then choose import from Google Chrome in Edge to import the password from Chrome to Edge directly.
