Superfluous and misleading requirements in Trailhead Security Superbadge

Hey everyone,

I just completed the Security Superbadge and I found it rather confusing...not because it's particularly difficult to pass the individual steps/challenges, but because there are several red herrings that led me to believe I had to implement things that weren't actually tested. Examples:
  1. Remote workers must use VPN to access Salesforce.
  2. All mobile users must use two-factor authentication (2FA).
  3. All mobile users must be individually approved by the admin.
  4. Customer SSN and Bank Account fields on contact records must be encrypted.
None of these are checked in their entirety. Numbers 1, 3 and 4 are not ever checked in any way. I might just lack the knowledge here, but are numbers 2 & 3 even possible? That is, can you make 2FA only required on mobile? I don't even know what "individually approved by the admin" means in relation to mobile access. To that end, does it mean Salesforce1 or does it mean mobile browser loading Classic? In either case - is it even possible to prevent access to both from a profile-level perspective?

This challenge took me a while because of these red herrings. When I finally realized they're just superfluous I was able to easily breeze through the challenges. (Pretty frustrating experience...)
