The following error message appears on your Password Manager when importing passwords from browsers:

Passwords remain in browser

"Passwords Remain in Browsers
For your security, please remove your browser passwords manually."

This message appears when Password Manager is unable to completely delete all passwords after importing them from the browser.

This issue can happen due to the following:

  • The browser password file is locked by other processes.
  • The browser password file is read-only.
  • The browser password file is corrupted.

To ensure security and central maintenance of browser passwords, manually delete the passwords from the browser.
