How to Export your Passwords from Bitdefender Password Manager

Bitdefender Password Manager has a feature that allows you to easily export your saved passwords (including account logins, secure notes, etc.) into a CSV or an encrypted file if you wish to switch to another password manager service.

Note: Keep in mind that a CSV (comma-separated values) file is not encrypted and contains your usernames and passwords in plain text format. Anyone with access to your PC can read them. It is therefore recommended that you follow the steps below on a trusted computer. If you choose to export your password list in CSV format, do not forget to delete the CSV file from the hard drive once you’re done. Otherwise, in the event of an identity theft attack all data could be recovered and exploited to your disadvantage.
