re: "Don't forget the ones who don't know their mother's maiden name (or anything else they supposedly set up) when asked to answer a security question."

 

Yeah... This always baffles me.

 

I have never commented on it before.


But people forgetting the security question.


Isn't that like... Internet 101?

If you are asked to give an answer to a security question, it is supposed to be something you know. If you don't think you will remember it, then write it down.

 

Or don't pick such a hard question.

I get that wrong frequently because there are three ways to write her maiden name, because of the Umlaut which I sometimes write as an ü, sometimes as an u and sometimes as ue.

Sometimes they don't know their mother's maiden name because the person who sold them the account forgot to tell them.

Interesting thread 🤔

 

I had no idea there was so many ways to trick the system, not nice.

Then they (!) would not set their mother's maiden name as their security question, would they...

People change.


For example: I used to have more hair.
