Abstract

A sample of 47 BYU students were recruited to participate in this study to determine who was using Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) on their online accounts. This study determined that there were many different factors that separated those who used MFA and those who did not. Some of those factors included: time spent on the internet each day, gender, the website itself, and personal privacy behaviors.
