There are many options that allow us to manage our passwords using different dynamics. Firefox Lockwise is the option that Mozilla launched in 2019 and will now come to an end.

This Mozilla application has several interesting features, but they will no longer be needed because Firefox is already implementing a better proposal.

Firefox Lockwise will disappear in December

Firefox Lockwise follows the same dynamic as most password managers, and it is possible to use it from different platforms. And of course, passwords are synchronized with the Firefox login. An ideal proposition for those who prefer this web browser.

However, Mozilla announced that it is closing its password manager app. As mentioned on their support page:

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.

While the app will continue to work, users should note that they will no longer receive security updates, nor any support. So it would no longer be advisable to continue using the app. However, this does not mean that Mozilla will leave users with no alternative.

Password manager in the browser

Recall that one of the last updates of Firefox on Android implemented password autocomplete, and not to mention the synchronization of passwords between computer and mobile. All you need is to log in and go through a brief configuration.

And of course, you can manage passwords from the same Firefox password manager. So you no longer need to have an extra app on your mobile to have this feature. If you use Firefox Lockwise you will not lose anything, since you can follow the same dynamic from the latest version of Firefox.
