Security Questions


Before using Password Self Services, each end user must answer a certain number of questions. If the end user ever needs to unlock an account or perform a password reset, the end user will be prompted to supply the answers to his or her questions.


This page allows you to manage the available security questions that end users can choose from. (To choose how many questions an end user must answer, go to Settings > Password Services > General.)
