Lightbulb Use master password in Firefox to Protect stored passwords


Protecting stored passwords using a master password

Firefox can save usernames and passwords that you use to access online services, such as your online banking and email websites. If you share a computer with anyone, it is recommended that you use a master password.
After you have defined a master password, you will be prompted to enter it once Firefox needs to access your stored passwords.

    • At least one capital letter
    • One or more digits
    • At least one non-alphanumeric character, such as the following: @ # $ % ^ & * ( ).
    • Also, remember to make your password something that is easy for you to remember, but difficult for others to guess to ensure that you, and only you, will be able to retrieve this secure information
