Mozilla has told users of its Lockwise password management app that it will officially end support for the app on December 13th. While the password manager will continue to work after that date, it will no longer receive support or security updates.
Lockwise began life in 2018 as Lockbox, an open source mobile app for iOS, Android and desktop that allowed users to access login credentials and autofill passwords stored in Mozilla’s Firefox web browser.
Most of these features have now been integrated into Firefox on desktop and / or mobile, signaling the end of the road for the standalone Lockwise app.
“The Firefox Lockwise app will no longer be updated and supported by Mozilla and will not be available in the Apple app and Google Play Stores,” Mozilla said in an email to users.
“After that date, current Lockwise users can continue to access their stored passwords and password management in Firefox desktop and mobile browsers.”
Android users will instead be able to access the password-filling functionality offered by the Firefox app, but iOS users will have to wait to be able to manage Firefox passwords throughout the system.
“Firefox for iOS will already sync your saved Lockwise passwords,” Mozilla said in a support article. “You can currently only use them in Firefox. Come back for updates in December 2021 on how to use Firefox for iOS as your system-wide password manager.”
Earlier this month, Mozilla released Firefox 94 for iOS devices, which introduces a new website design that adds several quality-of-life enhancements to the browser. Firefox says the new features are designed for “short bursts of online interactions that are constantly interrupted by life.”
