Most browsers that you use on your phone or your computer are able to save passwords for the sites that you visit. This can make it much easier to sign into any accounts that you might have on those sites. But if you don’t remember a password and need to know it to sign into that account from a different device, then you might be looking for a way to view the passwords that you have saved to Firefox.
Fortunately there is an option in the Firefox menu that enables you to find this information on your iPhone. You can follow our guide below to see how to find your password list, and even how to delete any passwords that you don’t want saved.
