    The Berry College Office of Information Technology (OIT) has enabled and requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) on your Berry account. OIT also encourages you to enable MFA on any other accounts that are multi-factor or "two-factor" capable, like social media accounts and financial accounts. According to the Multifactor (or Two-Factor) Authentication Quick Info page on the Cybersecurity News and Alerts site (https://cybersecurity.berry.edu), there are three possible factors. They are something you _____, something you ______, and something you ______.

    One of the most used second factors is a security app that runs on your smartphone. Examples of this are Google Authenticator and Microsoft Authenticator. The app generates numeric codes that you must enter into the website after you enter a valid username and password. The codes are usually how many digits long?

    Another possible second factor is a physical key that plugs into a USB port or uses near-field communication (NFC) to authenticate you. One manufacturer of this type of device is Yubico. They produce a series of devices with varying features that can all act as a second factor, supporting many different security protocols and hardware configurations. These devices are collectively known as ____________.

    Why bother with a second factor? It's just one more thing to have to do to get logged in to your accounts. One reason is that the vast majority of us have had some account data, including passwords, exposed by companies in data breaches. The Have I Been Pwned site, https://haveibeenpwned.com, can help you know what data of yours might be "out there" because of a data breach. On the main page of the site, they list both the largest breaches and the most recently added breaches. How many accounts were exposed in the Facebook breaches?
