Implementation of multifactor authentication in new UI

Our customers were planning to use multifactor authentication in the current UI, but the implementation of multifactor authentication has not yet been announced in the new UI.
When I contacted the support desk of WCA, we got a response that the schedule of release and implementation schedule is not decided and that we should register a request on this idea site in order to expedite the release time.

Could you please confirm the release schedule and implementation details as soon as possible about multi-factor authentication in the new UI?

    The multi factor feature as it is exists today will no longer exist in the upcoming months.  Expect new communications around this to start early next week.  Now, we do take security very seriously and its in replacement, we have put into place IBMid.  IBMid is using the state of the art and modern validation of customers. IBMid uses a special fingerprint against the users workstation and configuration along with a risk engine to determine if a 2FA challenge should happen again.  This is an industry best practice as suggested by NIST and at no additional charges to our customers.
