lockwise added all my friends password to my account and perhaps vice versa.

bold text I went to a friends office to help and logged in to my firefox account and perhaps synced it. when I got home I see lockwise added all my friends password to my account and perhaps vice versa. this is very troubling since every single password is there and anyone from his office could view all of them!

what can i do to separate the 2 lockwise accounts and how can I tell if all my passwords are merged with his?

Chosen solution

If you connect to a Firefox account then you upload all selected data to the Sync server and data currently on the Sync server is merged, so, yes, your logins are also on your friend's computer. You should never connect to your Sync account on a device that isn't your own or at least use the new/separate profile, so you can easily remove this profile. You will have to remove your logins manually from your friend's computer. If data like bookmarks and history are synced then this data will also have been transferred.
