I need lockwise on Android 6 phones. Will this be done?
Lockwise does not install on less than an Android 7.0 device. I have a firefox account that I use on my Android phones (Android 6.0), tablets (Android 4.3 and 5.0) and computers (linux and windows). If I want to keep them synced with Lockwise while using Firefox 70, this is a problem for ALL my Android devices. I don't have the cash to go buy new devices with new releases of Android (7.0 and above). An explanation of the design decision making that requires Android 7 and up would be helpful. I suspect some security features were added not in Android 6 and below, and coming up with a way to do it might be problematic. If Android 6 could be supported, it would be a real blessing.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:70.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/70.0
unfortunately it looks like they're going in the opposite direction. Latest release notes for version 3.1.0 say that the target SDK will be increased to 28, which is: Android 9.
Although the lower bound for the app is still Android 7 for now.

I have this problem as well. My Android is 5.1.
If I understand correctly, if I enable Lockwise on the PC and it starts generating random passwords then I can't see how I'll be able to use those apps on the phone at all.
What's the answer?
Thanks in advance, Oliver

Lockwise is a default password interface in desktop Firefox. You can just synchronise passwords with your Firefox for Android.
I really think that few people need this app on Android.
Thanks for the explanation.
