I agree with making 2FA required on all accounts. SMS is absolutely less
secure than other 2FA options, but more secure than no 2FA at all. This
would be a marginal security improvement for users, and from the sounds of
things a massive decrease in workload for staff.
However, given the known problems with SMS, I would urge staff to make it
possible for those of us with other 2FA methods configured to be able to
*disable* SMS 2FA on our accounts, to prevent it from ever being used even
as a fallback authentication method. Additionally, if SMS-based password
recovery is ever on the table I would like to be able to indicate that it
should never be available for recovery for my account.
As RS says, I'm happy FIDO is on the roadmap, but I don't see a reason to
wait for it to be ready before making 2FA mandatory.
