no, you encrypt your password locally, then you the encrypted vault is uploaded.
I guess you're talking about Authy here? I was talking about websites which offer 2FA functionality. Let's take Google as an example, now I want to secure my account with two-step verification. I chose to protect my account with OTP generated by an authenticator. now Google will ask me to scan a QR code right? This code is store on Google's servers right? Can an attacker gain access to these 2FA keys store on Google servers and thus rendering two-step verification useless?

I'm betting they're sorting all of the out now. Plus, governments of the future aren't going to give you the option to opt-out. The digital world is changing everything - especially notions of privacy, anonymity, government tracking and fundamental rights.
In the USA that is run by companies I believe they could and would enforce that, outside USA they wouldn't have such luck.

I would love for anyone to try and force me to put a micro chip in my skin.

Even in the USA, lawmakers seem to be unanimously against it.
