As you have likely noticed, Zero Click is a very new blog. And even though it's just a wee baby, it looks as if Twitter already has beef with it. After only one text-only tweet and another sharing my first blog post — How to install ANY extension in Firefox Mobile — it appears as if Twitter has already labeled Zero Click's account as spam.
(Move over, Authy. There's a new kid on the block. Say hello to ente Auth.)
Update: The token import issue mentioned in this post has since been patched. Snag the latest update from the Google Play Store, the Apple App Store, or directly on GitHub to use the feature successfully.
There is no short supply of two-factor authentication (2FA) apps out there. From Google Authenticator to Authy to andOTP, we have a plethora of options. Heck, even some password managers like Bitwarden feature 2FA functionality. But what we don't have yet is a standalone open-source solution that touts a modern UI, encryption, and cloud syncing all built right in. That is, until now at least. Say hello to your next 2FA app: ente Auth.
Firefox is easily my favorite web browser; both for mobile and for desktop. Privacy and security aside, I actually enjoy Firefox's workflow. Its flexibility and design caters to me in a way most Chromium-based browsers just can't—apart from Vivaldi and Opera, though I wouldn't necessarily equate bloat to flexibility or good design. And when you factor back in the privacy benefits Firefox brings, it's a no-brainer.
But, until recently, Firefox mobile has had one minor issue I haven't been able to get past—the lack of extensive add-on support. That was until I figured out how to add ANY Firefox extension to the Android mobile app, and now there's no looking back. Here's how to do it.
Cybersecurity firm Kaspersky defines zero-click exploits as “attacks [that] require no action from the victim – meaning that even the most advanced users can fall prey to serious cyber hacks and spyware tools.”
They go on to say “Zero-click attacks are typically highly targeted and use sophisticated tactics. They can have devastating consequences without the victim even knowing that something is wrong in the background.”
In short, a zero-click attack or exploit is just a piece of malicious software that requires no interaction from the victim to initiate its protocol. So, what does this definition of a zero-click attack have to do with this blog: Zero Click? The answer is simple. Almost nothing at all. But we will come back to that later.
