Mozilla will stop supporting Firefox Lockwise Password Manager


New Delhi: Mozilla, the company behind the popular Firefox web browser, recently announced that it will end support for its Firefox Lockwise password manager next month. According to a Mozilla blog post, after December 13, 2021, Firefox Lockwise will no longer be able to be installed or reinstalled from the App Store or the Google Play Store. iOS version 1.8.1 and Android version 4.0.3 will be the last versions of Firefox Lockwise.

The app can continue to work on a device, but it will no longer receive support or security updates. Mozilla also sent emails to users to let them know about the latest update.

“The Firefox Lockwise app will no longer be updated and supported by Mozilla and will no longer be available in the Apple app and Google Play Stores,” Mozilla said in its email.

“After this date, current Lockwise users can continue to access their saved passwords and password management in Firefox desktop and mobile browsers.”

As a reminder, Firefox Lockwise debuted in 2019 as a way for iOS and Android users to create, manage, and sync passwords across devices.

Meanwhile, earlier in October, a report said Mozilla’s Firefox is rolling out new features that will make it easier and more secure to sign in to apps on Android.

The update will give users the option to save and auto-fill passwords for Android apps using Firefox, or unlock them using their face or fingerprints. Firefox already has its Lockbox for storing credentials, but accessing sites or apps has never been easier than with Google’s Chrome.
