If you don’t use Google Chrome as your default browser on your Android smartphone, chances are you are using Mozilla Firefox. It is one of the most popular web browsers available for Android. Recently, Mozilla is adding some new features to the browser to enhance security.
Notably, as per an official blog, Mozilla has announced a password creation and storage tool for the Firefox browser. The new security or privacy features come as a part of the celebration of Cybersecurity Awareness month.
Firefox is a popular choice among users because it provides a minimal UI, with features that are actually usable, and are not just there for the sake of being there.
Fast forward to now, in line to refresh the Firefox Focus experience, Mozilla is adding a new password creation and storage tool. This will be beneficial for you if you are simply looking to get in and out of a website, with no intention of saving your password on these websites forever.
Firefox Focus is also getting new colors, a new logo, and a dark theme. A shortcut feature has also been introduced that would allow you to visit your most visited website quicker.
All these new features are available on the latest version of Firefox available on the Play Store
Mozilla is also adding a privacy tracking protection shield icon. Using this, you can turn off individual trackers. There is a global counter as well that will show you the number of trackers blocked by Firefox for you.
Talking about the password protection feature, you can save 100s of passwords on Firefox safely and securely. The feature is currently available for Android users, but it will arrive for iOS users later this year.
You will be able to create and add new passwords easily and take all of your passwords wherever you go with Firefox. More importantly, you can also unlock your passwords with a fingerprint or face.
All these features make this new update an important one if you are a regular Mozilla Firefox user. While these features are something that is available on the Google Chrome browser for some time now, it is nice to see other browsers catching up.
The newly updated Mozilla Firefox app is available on the Google Play Store. Make sure that you are running the latest version of the app in order to enjoy and experience all the new features that are available.
