I need to import bookmarks from my Chrome Android mobile. Is there any direct way to do it? Please do not suggest to sync Chrome account in desktop and do import from there, my Sync rights has been disabled by admin in Chrome desktop.

Nowadays (2023), for this question, one can try my Xposed module ChromeXt, which is an active open source project. From its README: Bookmarks can be exported in HTML format through the Developer options menu.

There is also a dicussion about this function, which might be helpful for you.


Google offers downloading your data from the Google products you use. If Chrome's data was synced on Android side, you could download from here.

  • This gave me an archive with a bunch of files, all of them containing between one and 600 repetitions of the string "Encrypted": "Your data is encrypted and cannot be exported.". Jul 16, 2020 at 18:40
  • @DanielSaner This is strange and do not reflect my previous experience with this. Maybe the archive (a zip archive I suppose) is now encrypted globally with some password you only can have? Maybe are you enrolled in their Advanced Protection Program that requires physical token? Beside of this, apart from any security settings changed on Google or, things they may have changed lately, or a bug in the late time, I dunno, you could try to reach them asking directly to Google support.

Google Bookmark Import Tool helps in cases when you need to backup Chrome Android bookmarks.

It is simple to use and generated file can be transferred from phone/tablet easily.
