Whonix Forum Setup - security

Hi, I am new here, new to whonix but very experienced with linux/debian/tails…

I have to say that I was surprised to see the 2fa uses google authenticator not PGP?

How can that be secure? I thought the whole point of whonix was security centered OS?

How can that be so if one involves google in the process?

Please, teach me…

TOTP is industry standard - not specific to Google.
