Mozilla’s password storage will cease to work the month after that on all available devices.
Mozilla, through a Lockwise support message, announced last week that its password manager application would cease to exist on December 13.
The iOS and Android versions that will be released are 1.8.1 and 4.0.3. They will not be available after that date.
Mozilla’s experimental “Lockbox” application was launched in 2018. It allowed you to access your passwords, and also provided an autocomplete function that allows you to navigate between different websites or apps.
The application was already compatible with iOS, Android and other desktop apps. This delighted web browser fans.
Firefox Lockwise, which would eventually become an extension and an application for Firefox, was finally born after many trials and errors.
Many Mozilla followers assumed the Lockwise app would last a long while, but it only lasted three years.
Mozilla recommends that users access their passwords with Firefox browsers. They are available for both smartphones and computers.
Mozilla claims that the Firefox app for iOS will be able to manage system-wide passwords by December 31st.
After last year’s series of layoffs, it is not surprising to see Mozilla focusing only on the few projects it has left.
The company retained its team that designed the operating system for the defunct Firefox phone and shut down its Thunderbird mail service.
