Security Q&A

Some of the guidelines for security answers are ridiculous:

  • Answers must be at least 4 letters long and can’t have more than 2 repeating letters in a row. What if my answer is “zzz” or “beeeater”?
  • The same answer can’t be used for more than one question. I guess this makes sense because it would theoretically make it easier for a hacker to guess the answer.
  • Pick questions and answers that are easy to remember and that don’t change over time.  Most sites I have seen don’t let you choose your own questions.

Some questions are priceless:

  • What was the one food you have tried, but would not eat under any circumstance?
  • What is the most unusual job you have had?
