2nd factor strong!

Google's director of information security and privacy this morning. It's 2017. Passwords are irrelevant. Anything you care about should be protected by a strong 2nd factor.

Typical juvenile Google. One just wants to cross the road on foot and they complain that there is no teleporter with integrated robobutler right next to the kerb to do that.

Most people and most applications on Earth are not ready for "strong 2nd factor". Or a likey to be so before civilization collapses again. Nor do they need it.
