Greetings!

I would to like to know, how can i enable Primary Password with Two Factor Authentication, if my Primary Password compromise?

Thank you.

Chosen solution

The Primary Password only work locally to encrypt the logins stored in logins.json in the Firefox profile folder. The PP never leaves the computer and has nothing to do with 2FA used for the Firefox Account (Sync) apart from that the credentials for Sync can be stored in logins.json (hidden from Lockwise).

Dear Bithiah,

Thanks for your reply, but this is not solve the purpose, whenever i open Firefox session it will ask 'Primary Password' to access different online services. Can we use Two Factor Authentication with this Primary Password which save important emails and their passwords, want to secure this Primary Password?
