How to transfer all settings from one machine to another (Export/Import)

I have one machine set up exactly how I want it, with all the website blocks and allowed urls, approved programs, etc.

So when I have a new pc at home after I install Trend Micro, I want the exact same settings, how can I backup my settings from one machine and apply them to the other one? There should be a cloud-based backup process or an export/import option, I don't want to have to set everything again one by one.

Thanks in advance.

Good day, community Champions!

@grantwilcockson @claudiubotezatu 

Here's How to Import/Export Trend Micro Security Settings

Export

1. Open Trend Micro Main Console.

2. Open Settings.

3. On your keyboard, press Ctrl + E. A new window will appear to let you export your current settings.

4. Click Yes to confirm.

5. Select the location where you would like to save the exported file. Once you have chosen the location, click the "Save" button to complete the process.

6. Save the file on a USB drive to easily transfer it to your new PC. 

Import

1. Open the Trend Micro Main Console on the PC where you will import the settings. 

2. Open Settings.

3. On your keyboard, press Ctrl + I. A new window will appear to let you import settings.

4. Click Yes.

5. Find the Exported Security Settings File you saved on your USB drive, then click Open. Once done, a pop-up “Settings Import Completed” should appear.

  

Have a good one!

You can request it. Will never be implemented!

I requested logical items 2 years ago, still nothing.

The OP did not ask how to import/export TM settings; he asked how to export/import "all the website blocks and allowed urls, approved programs, etc."

Which is not possible.
