    Phew, glad I changed my password from 12345 (sounds like the combination some idiot would have on his luggage :D) to password. Nobody will be able to crack that!

    It would have been nice had the article discussed the supposed weaknesses with 2FA. That’s the first I’ve heard of that. 2FA seems like potentially a better solution than biometric given the numerous problems with biometric as explained in the article.

      100% agreed. What ARE the weaknesses of 2FA? I mean, if someone has my cell phone or access to my email account already, obviously I’m already compromised and 2FA is useless. Maybe that’s what they were hinting at? Like you said, would’ve been nice if they expanded on that.
