Dear Firefox Support Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I'm Dr. Sobya owner of the sobya's skincare website. I'm seeking clarification on Firefox's password management security, considering the prevalent practice of users saving passwords for convenience. I'm keen to know if Firefox has robust measures in place to safeguard sensitive information, addressing potential risks similar to those raised about other browsers like Chrome. Given our skincare focus and the trust our users place in us, assuring the safety of their credentials is paramount. A detailed response on Firefox's security protocols would not only alleviate user concerns but also enhance trust and credibility for our platform. I appreciate your prompt attention to this matter and look forward to your insights.

Best regards, Dr. Sobya

If users save their login credentials in Firefox's password manager, they are stored on disk in an encrypted format, but the key also is stored on disk so someone with physical access to the computer could decrypt them. They also can be viewed from inside Firefox. If the user wants to prevent those forms of access, they need to create a Primary Password.

Users also can choose to store an encrypted copy of their saved logins in the Mozilla Sync cloud. These credentials are encrypted before upload using a key based on their Mozilla Account password. There's probably an article on that.

Note that the above is about Firefox on desktop, Firefox on mobile devices do not use a Primary Password, but use OS authentication like Biometrics (fingerprint and face recognition) or the lock screen password.

The PP on desktop is used to encrypt the actual encryption key with an extra layer of encryption, while OS authentication like Windows Hello or Biometrics, that can Firefox possibly use if no PP is set, merely add an extra step to access the passwords.
