    Mozilla announced this week that all developers of Firefox add-ons must enable a two-factor authentication (2FA) solution for their account to prevent supply-chain attacks. The new rule is to enter effect starting in 2020. Learn more:

    "Starting in early 2020, extension developers will be required to have 2FA enabled on AMO [the Mozilla Add-Ons portal]," said Caitlin Neiman, Add-ons Community Manager at Mozilla.

    "This is intended to help prevent malicious actors from taking control of legitimate add-ons and their users," Neiman added.
