    Which of the below is not used for Multi-factor authentication?

    • A.

      Something you do

    • B.

      Something you have

    • C.

      Something you know

    • D.

      Something you are

    Correct Answer
    A. Something you do
    Explanation
    "Something you do" is not used for multi-factor authentication. Multi-factor authentication typically involves using a combination of two or more factors to verify a user's identity. These factors can include "something you have" (such as a physical token or a mobile device), "something you know" (such as a password or PIN), and "something you are" (such as biometric data like fingerprints or facial recognition). However, "something you do" refers to behavioral biometrics, which is a separate authentication method that analyzes patterns of behavior, such as typing speed or mouse movements, to verify identity.
