2020. Firefox gets a better password manager



Mozilla launched version 76 of its Firefox browser with enhanced password manager. Firefox Lockwise will now ask you for your device password when you try to copy and paste credentials from your “Logins and Passwords” page in the browser. After you’ve confirmed your device password, you can see and copy your credentials for five minutes. This should make it a bit harder for others to access password-protected sites on your machine, especially if you’re on a computer you regularly share with others. Also new to Lockwise are alerts for vulnerable passwords that are identical to those that have been stolen in a known breach, as well as warnings when a website you use has been breached and your logins and passwords were likely stolen. In addition, Lockwise’s password generator now works with more sites and will help you find 12 random letters, numbers and symbols for you to use as your password.




2019. Mozilla launched free password manager - Firefox Lockbox


Mozilla’s new free password manager Lockbox is designed for Firefox users that want to use other browsers on iPhone and Android. Firefox Lockbox mobile app offers a simple if a bit basic way for users to access from their mobile device their logins already stored in their Firefox browser. The app is nowhere near as developed as password managers like 1Password, Dashlane, LastPass and others as it lacks common features like the ability to add, edit or delete passwords; suggest complex passwords; or alert you to potentially compromised passwords resulting from data breaches, among other things. However, the app is free — and if you’re already using Firefox’s browser, it’s at the very least a more secure alternative to writing down your passwords in an unprotected notepad app, for example. And you can opt to enable Lockbox as an Autofill service.***
