Wrap-Up 2023: Locker In Review

As we approach the end of 2023, we are excited to unveil our significant accomplishments.

First of all, let’s take a look at these amazing numbers!

We reached it just in 2023! Can you believe it?

But that’s not all. We made some big improvements all year long. Let’s dive into the details!

Successfully researched and implemented Passkeys to Locker

In 2023, Locker Password Manager underwent a significant enhancement by integrating the Passkeys into our application.

A Passkey is a private-public key pair stored on one’s devices, unlocked with biometrics or a device PIN. Users now benefit from an additional layer of protection, contributing to the safeguarding of their sensitive information. This improvement aligns with Locker’s commitment to staying at the forefront of security measures, ensuring that users have a seamless and secure password management experience with the latest advancements in password security.

Released Firefox extension

The recent release of the Firefox extension marks a significant milestone for Locker Password Manager, which previously supported only Chrome and Microsoft Edge. This update is a testament to Locker’s commitment to providing a comprehensive and streamlined user experience across various browsers.

With the addition of the Firefox extension, users now have the flexibility to enjoy Locker’s secure password management features seamlessly within their preferred browser. This expansion enhances user comfort and accessibility, ensuring that Locker remains a versatile and user-friendly solution for individuals seeking robust password security across different platforms.

Migrated from Manifest V2 to Manifest V3 for Chrome extension

Since Google has announced it will shut down Manifest V2 in June 2024 and move on to Manifest V3, we released Locker’s MV3 Extension on the Chrome Web Store.

This transition involves updating and adapting our extension code to align with the newest version of the Chrome Extensions platform. Migrating to Manifest V3 allows us to take advantage of enhanced features, improved security measures, and better performance optimizations offered by the latest platform version. By making this migration, we aim to provide our users with a more seamless and robust experience while ensuring compatibility with the evolving Chrome ecosystem.
