Mozilla has launched a verified badge and a 'By Firefox' badge to help users find trusted add-ons. Add-on developers must pay a fee to get their add-on reviewed before they can get a badge.
After a failed attempt in 2016, Twitter is once again going to try its hand at opening up verification. This time, Twitter is actually going to say what's required to be verified on its platform.
The Facebook-owned service has said in a statement that an API bug allowed attackers to procure personal information of several high-profile verified accounts, all of whom have been notified.
Twitter announced today that it would finally be opening up its verification process - a feature that was previously very exclusive. Soon, anyone will be able to apply for a verified account.
