Following Google’s move – roughly a year later – Mozilla is adding a random password generator to Firefox.
Infosec reporters say the add-on is expected to be rolled out for all Firefox users when Firefox 69 is released later this year and will work alongside the browser’s built-in password manager.
During registration processes on websites, Firefox will suggest a password. The “use generated password” option will then appear when the password field is activated and will be automatically saved if selected.
