Mozilla has informed users of its Lockwise password management app that it will officially end support for the app on December 13. The password manager will continue to operate after the 13th but it will no longer receive support or security patches.
Lockwise, originally known as Lockbox, is an open-source app for iOS, Android, and desktop platforms, which allows users to access login information while auto-filling passwords in Mozilla’s Firefox web browser.
Over the year, Mozilla has integrated most Lockwise features into the Firefox browser, negating the need for a separate app.
“The Firefox Lockwise app will no longer be updated and supported by Mozilla and will not be available in the Apple App and Google Play Stores,” Mozilla said in its email to users.
“After that date, current Lockwise users can continue to access their saved passwords and their password management in the Firefox desktop and mobile browsers.”
“Firefox for iOS will already sync your saved Lockwise passwords,” states Mozilla in a support article. “You can currently only use those inside Firefox. Check back for updates in December 2021 on how to use Firefox for iOS as your system-wide password manager.”
