Mozilla’s Firefox is working on developing a new Lockbox password manager for iOS. The Firefox Lockbox password manager app not only remembers passwords but also synchronises them across all iOS devices. Once installed, the app can fetch all your passwords saved in Firefox and allows users to search and sort entries.
Based on Firefox credentials, Lockbox can record any ID and password a user stores in the browser. For example, in the case of Twitter or Instagram, passwords saved in Firefox will be synced to your Lockbox account. Lockbox app will then help users sign in to corresponding iOS apps directly on different iOS devices. The Lockbox app also works with Touch ID and Face ID and Mozilla has employed 256-bit encryption.
