If you use the Firefox browser’s Lockwise password manager, there’s an additional step you should take to ensure security.

Let’s say you step away from your computer for a minute. Anyone who sits down and clicks on Logins and Passwords can pull up your password manager.

They can see your password list.

Someone could easily view or copy your password.

Here’s how to secure it. Start by clicking the three-line menu icon at the top right of Firefox. Choose Logins and Passwords from the drop-down menu.

When Lockwise opens, go to the top far-right and click on the three-dot menu icon.

Tick the box next to “Use a master password.”

Create a password.

As you type your password, Firefox will rate its security quality on a meter.

Then click on OK.

Next time you wish to view or change a password, you’ll have to enter the primary password.
