Can I use/login to my Firefox account with Firefox Focus? If not are there plans for that option?

Posted

I like having my bookmarks synchronized from desktop to mobile device. I want as much privacy as is reasonably possible from Big Data but am not terribly concerned about Mozilla (please keep that trust!). I would like to be able to log into my Firefox account while using Focus. Are there any plans for this? Is Focus just not meant for that at all? Is it, so-to-speak, an alternative to TOR -- providing an maximum of privacy, in which case being logged into any account might not make sense?

Hi

At present Firefox Focus cannot be connected to your Firefox Account although this may change in a future update. In the meantime, I recommend that you use Firefox for iOS.

Firefox Focus for iOS is not an equivalent of TOR. It does private private browsing in so much as trackers may be blocked and history not retained, but your browsing history is still visible to your internet service provider.
