How to Add a Passcode to View Logins in the Firefox iPhone App

The Firefox app on your iPhone includes a number of convenience features that can improve the way you use the browser. Among these options is the ability to save login information for certain websites.

But these usernames and passwords can be viewed by anyone with access to the device, which is a potential security risk should your iPhone ever get lost or stolen.

Fortunately, you have the ability to password-protect the login section of the Firefox menu so that your saved login information can’t be viewed without entering that password.

If you have stored passwords in Google Chrome on your computer, then our my passwords list article can show you how to view those.
