Security Questions are Stupid

Had to register on some sites recently, and Security Questions were mandatory. That triggered my rant mode, so now I’m going to tell everyone why Security Questions are stupid.

  1. I don’t have a favourite song, movie, poem, etc.
  2. Neither do I like to watch sports, have favourite artist or athlete.
  3. In the era of Facebook, relying on (assumed to be) private information knowledge is stupid. This includes Mother’s maiden name, pet name, or brand of car.
  4.  The favourites questions are particularly dumb because they assume your favourites don’t change over time.
  5. Ditto for dream job. Let’s see… when I was 3 I wanted to be a soldier. Then a doctor. Then a lawyer. Now I’ll do anything that earns me lots of money. Soon I’ll be happy I even have a job.

That is all I can think of for now. Any other thing you can think of?
