Comment (by antonela):

 Replying to [comment:8 cypherpunks]:
 > Another option instead of showing colors to convey the security level
 one can show a number badge from 1 to 3 (more security => bigger number,
 Standard => 1, Safe => 2, ...etc). `setBadgeTest` can also show a text but
 one would need to see if it will fit in that space

 This is a good option to test, yes. I don't know how normal people will
 understand the number, but it worth an exploration for sure. Thinking
 about incremental numbers = more security is tricky. If I get an A grade
 is better than a C grade. But if I get 3 is better than 1? How intuitive
 is it? IDK. I'll prepare mocks to see how it feels. Thanks :)

 > (Also a note on the `about:preferences` changes: I think they're
 unnecessary since the functionality would already be offered by the
 security button, so there's no need for duplicate effort)

 Well, we don't want to have the slider on the Top bar UI. The doorhanger
 is just showing the security setting description + a call to action in the
 case the user wants to change it. So if the user wants to change the
 security setting, they should go to `about:preferences` to upgrade or
 downgrade their setup.
