Mozilla has announced a new app called Lockbox. As the name suggests, it is a password manager app designed for Firefox users. Firefox Lockbox password manager is now available for download from the Play Store as well as the App Store. We put Firefox Lockbox to test and based on our findings, here’s how it works.
If you have used LastPass, you must be familiar with this sign-up process. Follow all the on-screen instructions to finish the initial sign-up process.
Similar to LastPass or any other password manager app out there, Lockbox operates on the principle of syncing logins from Firefox browser to Lockbox app, similar to how Google autofill remembers all your logins and passwords stored in Google Chrome. Inside Firefox browser, log in to your account using the same login credentials used to create Lockbox account.
If you are a desktop user, go to Preferences > Firefox account. Log in to your account and tick the Logins checkbox in Sync settings. Similarly, iOS and Android users need to go to Settings via the gear icon > Sign in to sync.
Your logins will be synced and stored into Lockbox. However, you need to ensure that you are logged in to your Lockbox account in the first place.
Sometimes, it is possible that your passwords may not sync with Lockbox for some reasons. In that case, all you need to do is manually syncing your login details to Lockbox.
