Avast SafeZone Browser - Importing bookmarks

From September 2017, Avast is temporarily pausing the distribution of Avast SafeZone Browser. Our updated browser, which includes a range of new security and privacy tools, will be available for download in the near future. If you already have SafeZone Browser installed on your PC, you will be automatically upgraded to our latest browser as soon as it is released.

Avast SafeZone Browser allows you to import browsing history, bookmarks, cookies and additional browser data from other browsers.

Import bookmarks to SafeZone Browser

To import browser data from mainstream browsers to SafeZone Browser, follow the Preferred method instructions. If your preferred browser is not listed, follow the Alternative method instructions to import your browser data using an HTML file.

  1. Manually export bookmarks from a browser into HTML format (if you are not sure how to do this, check the Help in your browser) and save it in a familiar location.
  2. Click the Avast SafeZone Browser icon on your desktop to open the program.
  3. Click the menu icon (three dots) in the top-right corner and select All settings.
  4. Scroll down to the Default Browser section and click Import bookmarks and settings....
  5. Select Bookmarks HTML file from the drop-down menu.
  6. Click Choose file and open the HTML file you saved as an export.
  7. Select your preferred browser and the items you want to import, then click Import.

    Ensure the browser you're importing from is closed during this process.

  8. Click Done when the success dialog appears.
  9. To access your bookmarks, click the menu icon (three dots) and click Bookmarks.
  10. Select Imported bookmarks from the left panel and double-click your preferred browser's folder. Your bookmarks are located in the sub-folder Bookmarks bar.
To make accessing your bookmarks easier, drag and drop each folder from Imported bookmarks to the Bookmarks bar menu item in the left panel. Your imported bookmark folders then appear below the SafeZone Browser URL bar and are available whenever you open SafeZone Browser.
