I assume that Keychain is a Safari feature!?


Is Keychain nowadays compatible to Roboform or ...?


If Keychain is good enough, how does one export Robobform bookmarks to Keychain format (I do not know if they differ).


As you might have figured out by now, I am preparing for the BIG TRANSFER of (in this case) my wife's computer stuff (calendar, email messages, email contacts, etc., etc.) in one fell swoop on D-day. Everything must be prepared and work!


Thanks for info. New to iMac.

    Third party password managers can cause problems. Better to use Keychain Access (native OS X utility) located in HD > Applications > Utilties


    For transfering data use Migration Assistant located in HD > Applications > Utilities


    How to use Migration Assistant to transfer files from another Mac


    Passwords can be viewed from Safari > Preferences > Passwords but they are stored as a keychain.


    When you enter login information on a website using Safari, if the data has not already been saved to a keychain, you should see a dialog asking if youwatnt to save the data to a new keychain.

    I would also like to use my Roboform data in the the Safari browser in my iphone.  However, I do not have a Mac, so I don't think Migration Assistant will work for me.  I currently use use the Roboform data on my Windows PC (in Explorer and in Firefox).  As I understand it, Roboform can only be used on the iphone through the ersatz Safari browser included in the Roboform iphone app.  I would rather import my Roboform data directly into Keychain (or into Safari itself), and was wondering how to do this.  Any help is appreciated.
