Persona is no longer actively developed by Mozilla. Mozilla has committed to operational and security support of the persona.org services until November 30th, 2016.
On November 30th, 2016, Mozilla will shut down the persona.org services. Persona.org and related domains will be taken offline.
If you run a website that relies on Persona, you need to implement an alternative login solution for your users before this date.
For more information, see this guide to migrating your site away from Persona:
If you're making a production system you will need to write integration tests that simulate logging a user in and out of your site using Persona.
