Protect saved passwords through device security

Posted

Although I love Mozilla and I am using it for decades now, I find it very frustrating the lack of password protection security. I cannot understand why Mozilla, the browser that aims to be the most secure for its users, cannot have a system similar to Chrome that requires user login before revealing stored passwords.

Whoever gets access on my computer can easily get all saved passwords - which might include banks/IRS/email, etc. It is even worse on the phone app.

This can be a major reason to stop using Mozilla Thank you

In Firefox you can use a master password to protect the passwords. Without using a MP you can always access the passwords although you may have to confirm this.

This is probably more secure that what Google does where it is normally sufficient to be logged in to a OS user account or allow access to the Keychain on Mac.
