In this article, we are going to talk about one of the amazing app released by Firefox for Android devices. If the Mozilla Firefox is your main browser, then there is good news for you. They released an app for those who can’t really remember their password. No, it’s not the traditional password manager app. They call it Firefox Lockbox. This app is free and available for everyone via the Google Play store, but now you can also download and install this app on bigger screens. Yes, you can download Firefox Lockbox for PC & Mac as well.
To download and use Firefox Lockbox for PC, you need to get your hands-on Android emulator and the rest of the guide is easy to understand. The good thing is that you can download this app on not just Windows 10, but on the previous version of Windows as well.
Firefox Lockbox – Take your passwords everywhere!
Let’s talk about the pros and cons of the app as well. Firefox Lockbox lets you access every password that you saved on your Firefox Browser. The idea behind this app is pretty simple to understand. If you are using Firefox or any other browser, it’s really convenient to log-in in it with your primary email address. That way, you won’t lose any saved password or bookmarks.
This works the same way, just sign-in with the same Email address that you used on the Firefox Browser. It will sync those passwords to you on this app.
You will get the benefit out of it if the main browser you use is Firefox. Let’s say you need to log-in to your Facebook account anywhere other than Firefox Browser and you have long forgotten it. This app will allow you to see your password on the go.
There aren’t really cons about this app since it’s the main focus is to provide you, your saved passwords from Firefox browser to this Android app. But I asked people to review this app. They suggested that there should be an option to store passwords on the app itself.
I think it would be great that you can store passwords manually in the app that can then automatically sync to the browser later.
