Firefox password manager is being eliminated

Firefox password manager is being eliminated

The company notes that users can continue to access your saved passwords and your password management in the Firefox desktop and mobile browsers after the end-of-life date. Users can sync information across multiple devices by navigating to the Settings menu and selecting Sync. The final versions of Lockwise are iOS version 1.8.1 and Android version 4.0.3, with users of the former told to await further instructions on how to sync their saved passwords outside of Firefox if they want to keep using the mobile browser as a system-wide password manager.

Mozilla has announced that its Firefox Lockwise password manager app will be discontinued in the coming weeks. The app, which is presently available for iOS and Android users, will be retired on December 13, according to Mozilla’s support blog post. While the app may still run on your device or browser after that date, users will no longer be able to download or reinstall it, and they will no longer receive maintenance or security upgrades, making it a far less appealing prospect. Lockwise, or Lockbox as it was originally named, was launched by Mozilla in 2018 as a way for users to secure their passwords on mobile and desktop devices.

The news comes after the company recently launched a new service aiming to help consumers stay safe when shopping online by providing email aliases. Firefox Relay (formerly known as Firefox Private Relay) hides your real email address, giving users five email aliases they can use whenever signing up for an online account. Anyone wanting more email can sign up for Firefox Relay Premium, which provides users with one subdomain from which they can create unlimited email aliases, alongside other features such as a summary dashboard of a user’s email aliases, the option to use their email aliases to reply to emails directly and customer support though a convenient contact form.
