Like Google, Facebook, Apple...Make it possible for websites to make a Login with Firefox option available so we have a trusted privacy preserving option given to us (and give Firefox some visibility)
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
Having a single account to sign in everywhere is super convenient, but it also has some downsides:
It's best to use a password manager and to have different accounts on different sites.
@SergI know it's not best practice but it's better than a weak password or connecting via Facebook/Google,also Firefox has a password manager, getting your Firefox account hacked can already make you lose access to all your accounts.The benefits outweights the drawbacks in my opinion and it expends the Mozilla ecosystem (which in my opinion is missing a big opportunity by not making google alternative services in partnership with other brands but that's an other subject)
Oh, absolutely agree that it's better than a weak or reused password!
Let me ask around, perhaps there are plans I'm not aware of.
I managed to find some piece of history https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Persona
I think there's some current thought going into something like this as well. Decentralized identity? Federated identity? Those keywords have been thrown around.
I've seen a pointer to https://gitlab.com/bluesky-community1/decentralized-ecosystem/-/blob/master/README.md (unrelated to Mozilla, but contains thinking around identity.) I believe this has come up in the "wtf could blockchains be good for?" discussion.
I really wish BrowserId had gone somewhere.
If there's a centralized authority, it seems like you could have it issue as many identities per account as you want. Heck, Firefox Relay already does something like this, splitting one email into multiple. But this is tricky stuff that I don't understand very well, so I dunno.
Thank you, I truly appreciate this.
Does Firefox have password generator, because they do have apps that read passwords. Its just a thought.
I like the overall idea of it, it would be interesting if Mozilla brought Persona back. I would trust it and use it over "Sign in with Google/Facebook/ect".
@Margie1984do you mean this? If so, then yes. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-generate-secure-password-firefox
If this feature is implemented, I would like to see biometric authentication introduced at the same time.
