Never get prompted for secret question

Posted

Download sync on desktop which only prompts me for email and password not secret question which is required for Firefox Home login on my iphone.

Chosen solution

The secret phrase is now called the sync key, the setup process would have created a random sync key for you but given you the option to change it.

If you do not know what your sync key is, on the computer where you set up Firefox, open the Options/Preferences window, then go to the Sync panel. Click on the Manage Account button to display more options, then click on the "My Sync Key" link.
