firefox security advice



I know most people use firefox. I use it too. If you plan on having firefox remember any passwords for you, make sure you also setup a master password. If you don’t do that , someone with physical access to your computer can find them. All an attacker would have to do is :

  • click options
  • click security
  • click saved passwords
  • click show passwords

Voila! Plaintext passwords!

So, you either use a master password, or you don’t let firefox remember your passwords! Simple, right?
