Mozilla launched password manager: Firefox Lockwise

By | June 10, 2019

Mozilla has recently launched a password manager that allows desktop users to manage their login credentials. Firefox Lockwise was previously known as Firefox Lockbox and was only available for Android and iOS. The desktop version has also been released.

Firefox Lockwise allows users to save their passwords and access them from other devices.

In this case, users must have installed both the mobile app and the desktop extension. In addition, the use of a Firefox Account is mandatory. To protect stored passwords, the password manager uses various technologies, including AES-256-GCM encryption.

In a Lockwise FAQ, Mozilla states that the desktop extension does not work at this time when a Master Password is enabled. If users want to use the extension, they must first disable the Master Password and then install Firefox Lockwise in the browser or enable it again.
