How does FireFox access ‘encrypted’ Chrome’s s…

I have my Chrome passwords encrypted with a passphrase, and was very surprised when Firefox was able to quickly import all the passwords, even without as much as asking for Windows login password (like when attempting to view the password unmasked in Chrome). Could anyone please shed some light on how exactly does that happen?

MASKMAIL – an anonymous email address service …

Maskmail is a free email privacy tool that instantly creates anonymous masked emails when signing up to a new service, so you don’t need to share your private email address. It’s a simple and convenient way to protect your online privacy and to secure your inbox against unwanted emails and identity theft.

When signing up for a new service, you never know whether your email will be shared or sold to third parties, or worse, fall into the wrong hands. And when you use the same email address to sign up for new services, you also make it easy for advertisers and hackers to track you from site to site and from shop to shop. That’s why we created Maskmail.

If online privacy is something you care about and if you dislike the idea of companies tracking you and collecting & selling your personal data, then this might be a useful tool for you. Using Maskmail for all your sign-ups will safeguard your online identity – especially in instances when you want quick one-time access for a new service, if you’re worried a site might spam you later, or if you’re just not sure a company is trustworthy.

We’re a small team of developers & product designers (there’s only 4 of us) based out of the Bay Area and we’re working on Maskmail as a part-time side-project. We spent our evenings and weekends working on this project, because we deeply care about our online privacy and think many others do too …
