    Hey guys, I am redoing my moms Macbook and she has her passwords saved in Safari, and you cant view them, like you can in Firefox, so I was wondering if there is any way to export or view them? I saw a thread that said copy ~/Library/Keychains and put that on the new Mac, but I just want to make sure that that will work, or if there is someway I can actually view the passwords & logins, etc.

    Thanks guys..

    I have never tried copying the keychains between computers but it is possible to view the passwords.

    Launch "Keychain access" and look through that.

    Having a look around it seems like you should be able to copy them between computers but best to have a back of the files first.
