When it comes to online security, confusion about the risks can lead people to obsess over obscure threats while ignoring key innovations that could truly protect them. Even highly-targeted users like politicians and activists don’t fully appreciate the scourge of phishing, and many aren’t familiar with an emerging form of two-factor authentication known as “Security Keys” that we hope can stop it in its tracks.
Security keys are “transformative” and “revolutionary” for information security
Don’t take this as advice [relating to above link] to give up on traditional 2FA! This man-in-the-middle business is generally reserved for targeted attacks (where someone specifically wants to compromise your security), and traditional 2FA is still a powerful disincentive to opportunity attacks (where someone just wants to compromise anyone’s security). In that case, you don’t need to be faster than the bear.
