Importing of saved passwords should be disabled as it could lead to unencrypted account passwords stored on the system from another browser to be viewed. This policy forces the saved passwords to be imported from the previous default browser if enabled. If enabled, this policy also affects the import dialog. If disabled, the saved passwords are not imported. If it is not set, the user may be asked whether to import, or importing may happen automatically.
