<p style=\"font-weight: 400;\">While it’s good news Google is taking steps to protect some of its highest-earning YouTube creators, the question remains as to why all YouTube users aren\’t facing mandatory MFA processes for their accounts too. </p>
<p style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Introducing variations on traditional MFA’s will not necessarily improve security as most MFA solutions can be easily hacked and all are pretty inconvenient. The future is authentication that is easy to use, has a high trust factor, gets rid of the password, and replaces it with MFA that has a smooth, frictionless user experience. This is the new way to authenticate because passwords are a fatal flaw, and you can’t just paste over already weak authentication methods.</p>
