MX6 Instructions: User Data


Recommended Posts


With the launch of new generation of a product, users usually will have concerns about data inheritance and security. Today, we will talk about MX6 handle these issues.

  • With MX5 cloud sync

If you are an existing user of Maxthon cloud sync, the account data of Maxthon 5 will be imported to the Maxthon 6 browser automatically at the first login.




For the existing users, data syncing is very easy.

Users only need to log into MX6 account and their account data will be automatically imported to MX6 from MX5. After the first sync, the data between MX5 and MX6 is no longer interoperable. This means that if you use both browsers at the same time, the data will not be mixed with each other.

Please note that compared with MX5 Maxnote that contains both bookmarks and notes, MX6 uses a separate Bookmark system. At the first data syncing, all bookmarks in MX5 Maxnote will be synced into MX6 Bookmarks, and also be retained in MX6 Maxnote. But after that, the new bookmark data in MX6 will be updated only in the Bookmarks and will not be saved to Maxnote.

  • Import MX5 or other browsers' local data and HTML file

Users can not only import MX5 cloud data to MX6, but also can import local data to MX6 by data import feature.

Please go to Settings and click "Import local data and HTML file..." in the General Information area.


The "Import local data and HTML files" function will automatically read all the browsers installed locally. Please select "Maxthon 5" in the drop-down list, set the import type, click OK button, and then all local data will be imported to MX6.


This feature can also be used to import data from other browsers like IE, Edge, Chrome, or Firefox. Import function will put the data in the current user account.

  • Import from file package

If you want to experience MX6 on a new computer, or your previous browser is not in the drop-down list, you can use the local data packet function to import your data.


In the "Import local data and HTML files" option, please select "Bookmarks HTML File" and the system will guide you to select a local folder after clicking OK, then the data can be imported.

  • Data cleaning

We have talked about various methods of data importing, but somebody may ask what should I do if I did a mistake and my data is a mess. Take it easy, MX6 also provides users with a variety of ways of data cleaning and recovery. Let's take a look at it.

  • Delete user

If you want to discard all the current data and quickly return to the original state, please try the user delete function.


Please go to "Manage people", choose that user, and click "Remove this person". Bingo, the user's data is completely deleted. Of course, other users' data is not affected.

  • Clear browser data

If you want to clear browser data periodically, you can use this feature. In "Setting > Advanced", click "Clear browser data". In the pop-up window, choose the data you want to clear.



  • Reset browser settings

In "Setting > Advanced", click "Restore settings to default settings " to reset the browser settings. This action will reset your browser settings, but your bookmarks, Maxnote, passwords, browsing history and other personal data will still be retained.


  • Summary

Maxthon 6 provides a wide range of data import, sync, and cleaning features for different use cases. If you have any questions or better suggestions, you can tell us through the Maxthon community or user groups. We will try our best to make MX6 better.

Since the Mx6 use a seperate Bookmark system. Is the new Mx6 bookmarks being sync to user data?

Hi there, bookmarks belong to the user account data. If you have the browser account, the data of bookmarks will be synced to your account. Maxthon 6 just separates the note and favorites.

Even though MX5 cloud sync worked perfectly, I do not see MX5 importing local data.

Agree, no matter how many times I try to import data from Microsoft Edge, it does not do it completely. Only the favorites were imported.

Hi No.1 MaxthonFan, it only can import the favorites data from Edge. It is a bug of the option display, and it has been reported to the dev team.

But this is not in .1200 version too.

 ? Hi Polaurent, we found some issues in 1200 so we delayed to upload the test version here. You can go to About to update the version 1200 to 1201.
