The security questions are used to provide for advanced authentication for your account. When a user logs into your account, the system will determine if their computer is already registered. If not registered, the user will be prompted to answer the three security questions, and the user will gain access only if correct answers are provided.

A standard list of questions is available to choose from. These questions are designed to be fairly simple and to have short answers. In selecting questions, make sure to choose those whose answer is obvious to you, and make sure you would enter the answer in a consistent manner.

For example, if the question is “What is your brother’s name?” the answer may not be obvious if you have multiple brothers. Or if you have one brother, you must be sure to enter the answer in a consistent manner. If you configure the answer as David, the system will not accept Dave as a valid answer.
