Firefox on Android will soon automatically fill in the credentials of all applications
San Francisco, October 2 (IANS): Mozilla’s Firefox introduces new features that will make it easier and safer to sign in to apps on Android.
The update will give users the ability to save and auto-fill passwords for Android apps using Firefox, or unlock them using their face or fingerprints, Engadget reports. .
Firefox already has its Lockbox for storing credentials, but accessing sites or apps has never been easier than with Google’s Chrome.
With the update, when users create an app on their Android device, they will be able to add a new password and save it directly in the Firefox browser. It will then be recorded on both mobile and computer.
From there, users can automatically enter any password they’ve saved in the browser “to log into any online account like your Twitter or Instagram app… no need to open a web page, ”the Firefox team wrote.
If users have multiple devices, they can use your Firefox account to sync passwords on each of them. Firefox also introduces biometric security, allowing them to access accounts using their face and fingerprints.
The new features will arrive with the Firefox 93 update, which begins rolling out on October 5.
