Firefox supported Authenticators

rg
Posted

If a user wishes to install a Firefox supported Authenticator App, you click on the link to choose one. I was taken to an App called "Authy". After spending ten minutes filling in all the crap they want for me to establish an account, I added them to 1Password and opened the application. The FIRST instruction is for the User to ADD the site they will be using Authy to retrieve an Authentication Code in order to log into Firefox. I typed in Firefox and you are NOT in their list of supported applications. Facebook, Twitter, Chrome, etc. are all there. Moreover, I could NOT add Firefox as one of their supported applications. I had to submit a request. Did it EVER occur to the Firefox Developers that maybe before you throw up a list of Authenticator Apps that support FireFox, that you first determine if they actually do???????? This is sixth grade coding and a waste of thirty minutes. It makes me question if any of the supposed features in your browser are anything more than "Vaporware". Listed features that are supposedly running in the background, but actually aren't even coded in. I'll skip your security features since its obvious you don't have a clue how to implement them, or they are just there for another type of "fake marketing scheme". The attachments ARE from the downloaded application, yet there is NOTHING for me to input in Setup04 Attachment Pic, because I can't create an account that is tied to Firefox. I don't care if you respond to this because I don't care anymore.

The Firefox Accounts system does indeed support the Authy app for two-factor authentication. For more information on adding accounts to Authy, please refer to Add a New Two Factor Authentication (2FA) Account Token in the Authy App on the Authy support website.

If you are using the desktop version of Authy or are not able to scan the QR code that is visible on the Firefox Accounts screen, you need to press the Can’t scan code? button to reveal a secret key that you need to manually enter into Authy in order to add your account.

Also see Secure your Firefox Account with two-step authentication for more information on using two-factor authentication with your Firefox Account.

Hope this helps.
