Mozilla is Shutting Down its Firefox Password Manager App

Published

on

Mozilla has announced that it will discontinue its Firefox Lockwise password manager app on December 13th. The final release versions are 1.8.1 (iOS) and 4.0.3 (Android) and will no longer be available to download or reinstall after that date.

What started in 2018 as a small experimental mobile app called Lockbox ended up bringing a way to access saved passwords and perform autofills on iOS, Android, and desktop devices to a small but enthusiastic following of Firefox fans.

The app was also later adapted as a Firefox extension. It seemed like it was apt to stick around for the long run.

According to the article, Mozilla will end support for the Firefox Lockwise app on Android and iOS, effective December 13, 2021. You will no longer be able to install or reinstall Firefox Lockwise from the App Store or Google Play Store. iOS version 1.8.1 and Android version 4.0.3 will be the last releases for Firefox Lockwise. The application may continue to work on your device, but it will no longer receive support or security updates.

You’ll recall that Mozilla shut down its Firefox Send file transfer tool last year, and layoff many of its staffs building the defunct Firefox phone.

After December 13, 2021, you can continue to access your saved passwords and your password management in the Firefox desktop and mobile browsers.
