Reset your Primary Password if you've forgotten it

(Redirected from Forgot my master password)

Primary Password is replacing Master Password. Firefox is removing terminology from the browser that has been identified as derogatory or exclusionary. Learn more about why we’re making this change.

The Primary Password feature protects all of your locally stored usernames and passwords with a global password. If you have forgotten your primary password, you must reset it.

Warning: Resetting your Primary Password will remove all of your saved usernames and passwords.
