RELATED ARTICLESecure Yourself by Using Two-Step Verification on These 16 Web ServicesTwo-factor authentication, also known as 2-step verification, provides additional security for your online accounts. Not every service will reset your account and give someone else access just because they know the answer to your security question, but some will.
RELATED ARTICLEWhy You Should Use a Password Manager and How to Get StartedThe majority of people use very weak passwords and reuse them on different websites.
The obvious thing to do is not use real facts in your security question answers Where did you go to school? It's definitely more accurate say that obvious answers are insecure rather than security questions in general.
One recommendation - use security questions like a second password - and never disclose to anyone.
Of course, it's a good point, and I know that I have used some pretty lame security questions myself in the past before I discovered LastPass, but I can't remember what accounts I used them for. DID YOU KNOW?The majority of television studios are still using sitcom laugh tracks recorded in the 1950s and 1960s.

But, for all the time we spend worrying about our passwords, there’s a backdoor we never think about.
Google and Microsoft no longer offer security questions for their accounts — instead, you can recover an account using an associated phone number. Other services use security questions as part of an authentication process that will require other personal information.
Choose something that would be difficult for other people to find out or guess, not something like where you went to school. For example, "What was the name of your first pet?" is a great one for me, even if I use the true answer.
The only way that I can think of finding out is if somebody goes to the trouble of hacking these accounts, and then I would probably find out somehow. Even if the answers aren’t public knowledge already, most normal people will share details like where they met their spouse and where they went to school in normal conversation. Your account is no longer as secure as your password is, it’s only as secure as your most obvious security question. You now just have a second password for your account — write it down somewhere secure or store it in a password manager like LastPass or KeePass so you can access it in case you ever need it. Whatever you do, be sure you aren’t opening a backdoor an attacker could use to bypass your password. And, of course, it's pretty easy to make up answers that are easy to remember yourself, but no one else would likely think of. Of course, you’ll want to keep this answer safe in case you ever need to provide it in the future.
