Every hack ever can be attributable to (some degree of) human error. Where there is no human error -- AT ALL -- there can be no hacking and no security breaches.Something like the Authenticator simply reduces the number of possible errors we fallible humans can make from 'several' to 'a few'. There is no possibility that any technological fix will ever reduce the number of possible human errors to 'none'. At best, there can be technological solutions that reduce the possible number of human errors to such a low number that it isn't worth the time or energy to find and exploit them.So, to reiterate the valuable life lesson learned here: "statistically, an Authenticator is good as 100% security" and that is as good as you can hope for.
