Introduction
Significant security concerns have been raised in the modern period due to the widespread use of
digital channels and our growing reliance on them. The dawn of the digital age has brought with
it an explosion of new ideas and connections, but it has also left us vulnerable to cyberattacks. In
particular, phishing assaults have spread like wildfire throughout the cybercrime landscape.
Phishing attacks, which deliberately mislead users in order to steal their personal information, are
a serious problem for online safety. They pose a significant risk of monetary and public-image loss
as well as privacy violations. These assaults highlight the need for a more robust security solution
by highlighting the weakness of existing single-factor authentication techniques like usernames
and passwords. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) has been widely adopted by the cybersecurity
industry as a more reliable security solution to this problem (Gill & Jones, 2016). Since MFA
requires numerous forms of verification before allowing access, it serves as a strong deterrent
against hacking attempts (Libicki, 2011). The purpose of this study is to evaluate how well MFA
protects users from the increasingly sophisticated phishing assaults. This research project
examines MFA methods, from hardware tokens to biometrics, to determine their phishing
prevention efficacy. MFA’s efficacy in combating phishing attacks is also expl …
