When you complete an accomplishment in Watershed, you earn a badge that you’re able to keep and share. One way to share these badges is with Mozilla Backpack. Mozilla is a free software community best known for the Firefox web browser. Both Mozilla Backpack and Watershed use Mozilla Open Badges, a commonly adopted standard for the awarding of badges.

Click Grant permission to allow Watershed to send Mozilla your badges:
