    Check Chrome Preferences>Settings>Sign in>Advanced sync settings...>Passwords checked.

    hey it didnt work, it only got passwords from my google account, not safari. it says it will allow OSX keychain to autofill but it isnt.

    I have never found a way to import Keychain passwords into Chrome. Chrome does use Keychain to store its own passwords (I think that is what that screenshot is referring to), but you need to reenter them all in Chrome then they will be saved as separate (new) entries in Keychain.
