How to answer password security questions


DON'T actually answer the question. Someone might be able to learn the answer and then change your password. Instead, use the question itself. Figure out a formula that takes certain word positions from the question, and "glue" them together with numbers or symbols. For example, your formula might be first word and second-to-last, glued with "plum!". Then, the answer to the question: "What was your mother's maiden name?" will be "what plum!maiden".
