You’ll soon be able to use Firefox’s password manager within Android apps. At this point, the manager is able to store passwords within the browser. This will soon also be possible within Android apps.
It is exciting to use a password manager because it stores all your passwords and it has to be done securely. Because of this, Firefox not only comes with the new option for Android but also provides additional security features.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Mozilla Writes: This Cybersecurity Awareness month we added new features for Firefox on Android to keep your passwords safe. Firefox allows users to seamlessly access passwords stored by Firefox. This means that you can use any password you have saved in the browser to log in to an online account, such as your Twitter or Instagram app. You don’t have to open a webpage.
You can use biometric security to unlock the app and access your accounts securely. Because you use your smartphone, you can choose your fingerprint or a face scan as confirmation. If you use Firefox Sync, you can also use the saved usernames and passwords in the desktop version of Firefox. This gives you instant access to a new password manager on Android. It is immediate new competition for 1Password, Bitwarden and LastPass.
Firefox Password Manager
You can register a new password directly in the Firefox browser, after which it is immediately available in both the browser on your mobile and your desktop. It is also possible to turn on autofill, which automatically fills in passwords. The passwords stored in your Firefox account can be monitored extra by Firefox Monitor.
If there is a data breach or an account has been hacked, you will receive an email. Tuesday, October 5, the new features will be available in the update of Firefox on Android (version 93). The Firefox password manager is free to use.
