#geek - #If 2FA Verification Methods have been bypassed by hackers, then what is the solution?


If 2FA Verification Methods have been bypassed by hackers, then what is the solution?

You might be aware of the many current issues with 2FA Verification methods that have been bypassed by hackers, as well as other supposedly "secure" encryption systems: such as what occurred on Reddit merely months ago, when hundreds of thousands of accounts were exposed/hacked (Yes, this actually happened. Reddit got hacked, Google it.)

Hackers have literally call-forwarded verification text messages to their own numbers, and logged into accounts (Happens more often that you think). The only real solution I've seen so far has been the Google Authenticator.

I was reading an article about a solution to the 2FA Verification problem on what appears to be a blockchain-based system, although I am highly skeptical of the surrounding scams and issues with these kinds of projects, I think it could still provide some interesting solutions if they're real and viable. Here's the article I read: https://medium.com/p/15280b8a3349?source=user_profile---------9------------------

I really want to know what you guys think about this, and if this is at all feasible, how could businesses or people even implement this? Perhaps some cryptography experts could thime in their thoughts? What solutions are currently available?
