Mozilla Firefox has launched its 76 version and has added a password management tool “Firefox Lockwise”. Mozilla team is claiming that it would look after the password reusability problems by alerting the users if they are using the same password for multiple websites. Firefox has been warning to the users if a site that you are logging on has suffered from a data breach or not.
Many people use the same password for various applications as it is easier to remember and operate, however, it is a serious issue. If hackers, manage to breach the one application, then they could try to use the same credential information of users on other platforms known as credential stuffing.
Firefox is claiming that Firefox Lockwise will ease your problem of remembering and using complex, unique passwords. Mozilla has claimed that “Firefox Lockwise” can be seen as an alternative to 1password or BitWarden. Therefore, if you are struggling for using complex and unique passwords then using a password manager tool is a must. If you have not set up the master password for Firefox 76, it has also made you type your system password before showing your details.
There are other exciting features that come equipped with 76 versions of Firefox.
Firefox will now support the picture-in-picture technology which will help you to keep up the miniature video player visible on-screen even when you are browsing through the different tabs.
