The place where I put information that can be used for a social engineering attack to save you the bother of having to search through endless facebook/twitter/snapchat posts.

Starbucks cup for the Mother of Dragons

Mother’s Maiden Name

Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons.

Favorite Movie

What? Are you serious? How am I supposed to pick one? The others would get upset. Could I concatenate all of the movies I have liked together? How long is your text field for security answers? I doubt it is long enough. Speaking of not long enough, its when you really start to fear death that you learn to appreciate life. I don’t have time for this Mickey Mouse bullshit.

Favorite Color

Blue. No, yel…

Favorite Superhero

Superman
Batman
Spiderman

Ironman
Jessica Jones

Deadpool

Seriously though, how on earth is this a good security question? There are only so many superhero characters and many of them could be weeded out based on age and other demographics. And what if a scammer says “Superman” and the customer representative says “no!” Do you get to say, “Oh, right, my favorite when I wrote my security questions was “Batman.” Dumb question. Actually, “favorite” anything is dumb.

Phone Number

867-5309 and ask for Jenny.

First Car Model

I know this one. The Model T? Wait… was there a Model S? Hmmm… maybe The Model A? …quick check on google… oops, seems there were cars over 100 years before that. Never mind. Even I wouldn’t get this security question right. Who asks trivia to get into your own bank account anyway?
