    Hello,

    I am about to move to a new mac and I'd like to take all my passwords with me in a one simple move. Is there a way to export all my keychain content import it to my new mac?

    Tahnks in advance!

    ~/Library/Keychains/

    Under File menu is import/export option.

    If you have a Firewire cable (preferable) or a Ethernet cable, you could connect the new Mac to the old Mac and let Migration Assistant on the new Mac move your stuff (including Keychain) over to it.

    Well, I did try it before I asked that question. The export option is grayed out for me. Can you plz go to your keychain and try exporting?
