    It's pretty easy to accidentally delete something from the keychain via the Safari interface. I opened up the keychain application, and it does not seem to allow me to export my keychain to back it up.

    So is there a way to back up my keychain? Losing all my passwords would be disastrous, as they are all very long and pure random gibberish.

    Fully agree. You could indeed accidentally remove all login data with one click which would mean I could say good bye to the digital world. I am currently working on a solution to this without taking screenshots of every single password.

    Yes, I occasionally output an archive from both Calendars and Contacts just to be safe. I also agree that keychain needs something similar.
