Apple had recently rolled out an incremental update to macOS Catalina (v10.15.4) with various bug fixes, and also a few new features. One of the most important features is Chrome Password Import. This feature allows mac users to import stored passwords from Google Chrome to Safari on Mac Computers with a few clicks.
If you use Safari and Google Chrome browsers on your Mac computer, you can easily import Chrome Passwords into Safari for easy AutoFill. All the imported passwords go into iCloud Keychain and can be used across all your Apple devices. Check out the detailed tutorial below.

- Open Safari on your Mac, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air
- Go to File > Import From > Google Chrome
- Select the items to Import. Make sure you select Passwords
