What began as a small experimental mobile software called Lockbox in 2018 has now grown to provide a means for Firefox users to access stored passwords and do autofills on iOS, Android, and desktop computers. Later, the programme was modified as a Firefox addon. It seems to have the potential to last a long time.
Last week, Mozilla revealed in a support post that the Firefox Lockwise password management tool will be retired on December 13th. After that date, the final release versions of 1.8.1 (iOS) and 4.0.3 (Android) will no longer be available for download or reinstall.
Suggestion For You:
The support article recommends that users continue accessing passwords using the native Firefox browsers on desktop and mobile. In an added note on the support site, Mozilla suggests that later in December, the Firefox iOS app will gain the ability to manage Firefox passwords systemwide. The note alludes to Mozilla adopting the features of Lockwise and eventually integrating them into the Firefox browser apps natively on all platforms.
With many layoffs last year, it’s no surprise Mozilla continues to streamline the projects it keeps on its plate. The company, over the years, took down the team building the operating system behind the defunct Firefox phone, shut down its file transfer tool, and spun off its Thunderbird email platform.
