Mozilla’s free Firefox Lockbox password manager now available on Android

Firefox Lockbox

Mozilla made the Firefox Lockbox available for Android today. The app was previously available only on iOS.

Firefox Lockbox is a free password manage from Mozilla that lets users view, copy, and paste every password they have saved in the Firefox web browser. It can also be set as the default autofill service on Android and from device settings and choose which browser users want to open their website URL in.

Firefox Lockbox uses 256-bit encryption to lock down the passwords and the app itself can be locked behind a PIN, password, or fingerprint for added security. It also comes with an automatic timer that locks the app after a certain amount of time.

Overall, Firefox Lockbox is a simple password manager. It does not allow users to create a new password within the app, check to see if passwords were part of security breaches, or save anything other than passwords. Nevertheless, since it is not a traditional password manager, like LastPass or 1Password, users who use such apps should continue using them.

With that being said, Firefox Lockbox syncs across your devices and gives Mozilla a small leg up over Google Chrome, as Chrome does not offer a dedicated password manager for passwords saved in Chrome.

Firefox Lockbox does not feature in-app purchases and is available for free, it can be downloaded through Google Play Store.
