Passwords are always going to be vulnerable to being cracked. Fortunately, there are solutions out there that are making it safer for users to interact with services on the web. The new standard in protecting users is Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) authentication which is already available in browsers like Google Chrome.
Mozilla currently has a bug open to start the work necessary to delivering U2F support to people around the globe and bring Firefox into parity with Chrome by offering this excellent new feature to users.
I recently reached out to the folks at Yubico who are very eager to see Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) support in Firefox. So much so that they have offered me the ability to give out up to two hundred Yubikeys with U2F support to testers and will ship them directly to Mozillians regardless of what country you live in so you can follow along with the bug we have open and begin testing U2F in Firefox the minute it becomes available in Firefox Nightly.
If you are a Firefox Nightly user and are interested in testing U2F, please use this form (offer now closed) and apply for a code to receive one of these Yubikeys for testing. (This is only available to Mozillians who use Nightly and are willing to help report bugs and test the patch when it lands)
Thanks again to the folks at Yubico for supporting U2F in Firefox!
Update: This offer is now closed check your email for a code or a request to verify you are a vouched Mozillian! We got more requests also then we had available so only the first two hundred will be fulfilled!
