Enhance your online protection with these security question tips

Security questions play a significant role in keeping your personal accounts protected online. Using these questions in the right way can enhance your privacy even more.

These simple suggestions will help you stay up-to-date on how to keep your personal information locked down.

  1. Steer away from answering security questions with obvious answers, or answers that could be learned through a quick internet search. Avoid anything that is public knowledge such as birthdays, hometowns or job location.
  2. Provide more than a single word to the question. Use multiple words or a description.
  3. Pick questions that have the possibility of multiple answers.
  4. Make sure your answers are easy to remember, even several years from now.
  5. Answers to security questions should never relate to the actual password to the account.
  6. You can also use answers that are unrelated to the security question, but easy to remember.
