Mozilla launches password manager for Firefox users on iOS (but only in the US)

THE Mozilla announced this week the first two sado applications of its initiative Test Pilot, dedicated to testing experimental features and tools for your products especially, of course, the browser Firefox.

The most interesting of them (at least for fans of the Apple ecosystem, this) is called Lockbox and its mission is to expand the password manager built into Firefox to other parts of iOS, adding important security and sync features to the equation. There is only one small problem: for now, the new service is only available in the United States.

The operation of the Lockbox is very simple: after downloading the app and entering your Firefox credentials, a single touch saves all your login and password information saved in the browser. You can then quickly check and copy this information to log into the accounts for each application or website; to make it even easier, Lockbox has an integrated browser so you can log in to your favorite sites even faster.

Mozilla promises complete security with the new service: it is protected by 256-bit encryption and can only be opened with a password or using Touch / Face ID, and automatically locked after a period so that you do not run the risk of having one. snooping user taking a look at your access data. In addition, Lockbox is synchronized between all your devices.

The application that is still in beta is already available for free on the American App Store. We hope it arrives here soon, as it is an interesting (and free!) Alternative to the toughest password managers, such as 1Password, for Firefox users. Oh, and for those who are on the side of the robot, Mozilla has already launched its other program application Test Pilot, Notes by Firefox (a notes app), on Google Play.
