The use of passwords is one of the simplest but effective measures to prevent other users from accessing our files and personal information without authorization, to help simplify all that, current browsers, in this case we are talking about Firefox Quantum, gives us the possibility of safely storing the passwords of the websites that we visit and in which we log in, this facilitates access to the site at any time because it is likely that for some reason we forget the access password..

 

 

When we change equipment, we format it or for some reason we reinstall Firefox, we want to have the passwords available again so that we do not have to enter it again, that is why in this tutorial TechnoWikis will explain how to export and import Firefox passwords using the file CSV.
