Mozilla is making it easier to access your saved passwords through its browser as part of a new update that will be released soon for Firefox on Android.
On the occasion of this year’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the company added several new functions to Firefox for Android, which should help protect the passwords of its users online.
Mozilla browser users can seamlessly access all passwords stored in Firefox’s password manager. This means that they can use their passwords saved in Firefox to log into any of their online accounts without having to open a website.

At the same time, users can also use biometric security such as your face or fingerprint to unlock the app and securely access credentials for their online accounts.
Firefox saved passwords
In addition to making it easier to access your saved passwords, when you create an account for any app on your Android smartphone, you can now create and add a new password that is saved directly in Firefox. From here you can use this new password on both mobile and desktop when you log into the associated online account.
Mozilla also offers the ability to autofill passwords on Android, and users can use any password stored in Firefox to log into their online accounts. However, if you have a Firefox account, you can sync all of your passwords on both desktop and mobile devices.
Access to Firefox’s password manager on Android can be further secured with your fingerprint or face so that no one else using your smartphone can use your saved passwords to log into your online accounts.
While these new password features can help protect your online accounts, you can further protect your device by logging into Mozilla VPN and using the company’s VPN service to encrypt the data sent by your smartphone.
