Password Manager is able to import and export your passwords databases. You can import both passwords from other password management applications (e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, KeePass passwords), and passwords that you have already exported from Password Manager.

Passwords are imported from *.xml and *.ini files. Password Manager can export the Password Database to *.xml, *.html or *.txt files. Export is convenient for opening general access passwords, printing the Password Database, or saving a backup copy of the Password Database to a file in a different format to Password Manager.
