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)
This is a great idea. I already avoid sites that require setting up a new account, so being able to SSO with a FF account would be handy.
If it could be made password-less, that would be amazing. I login to my microsoft account using just the MS authenticator app like this:
The MS authenticator app also allows non-MS accounts for MFA/2FA (eg I've got my snapchat account in there).
I'd like to add on to what others said, in particular I think copying "Sign in with Apple" is the best option PLUS you can blend it with a service you already offer, Firefox Relay. I would pay for that instantly.
From the Sign in with Apple page / some of my own words, hopefully it all makes sense:
- At your first sign in, apps and websites can ask only for your name and email address to set up an account for you.
- You can use Firefox Relay Mozilla's private email relay service to create and share a unique, random email address that forwards to your personal email. This lets you receive useful messages from the app without sharing your personal email address.
- Mozilla would make the same promise not to track/profile users and only retain information needed to make sure you can sign in and manage the account.
- The service is compatible with the OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect standards, and integrates with the Firefox Relay extension.
Hit me with that constructive criticism people! 🙂
