It's a skewed survey.

I'm sure that there are plenty of people who use 2FA on a daily basis without knowing what it's called. Why do they need to know what it's called?

Similarly, I'm sure there are plenty of people who don't know the difference between http and https but do know that they need to look for a padlock symbol on their address bar.

I find the number of "not sure"s quite reassuring in some ways, it's often the most honest and least used response in this sort of survey and it suggests that people aren't necessarily putting blind faith in their cyber security.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
