Hi, Is there a possibility to delete the sync data without completely deleting the account? I used Firefox Sync to transfer some passwords and I understood that they are encrypted on the sync server. However, it might be that even the encryption might be broken and attackers could steal my passwords. That´s why I would like to delete the password data on the server (but keep the account).

Is this somehow possible? I didn´t find any article about exactly this topic.

Best regards, Sebastian

If you stop syncing the logins on all connected devices, then login data stored on the Sync server should be removed. You can reset the password of the Sync account to remove all data stored in this account and each device need to reconnect using the new password. Best is to reconnect one device at the time and wait for the initial Sync to finish before connecting another device.

You can install the About Sync extension to check what data is stored on the Sync server via the about:sync page provided by this extension.

Close and restart Firefox to access the about:sync page added by this extension (see the about:about page for possible about pages).
