*extremely security question voice* people always have a favourite movie and it never changes. everyone has been to at least once concert. the answer to the question "what is your pet's name" will never change. people have one single nickname from high school and they'll never forget it
@lynnesbian can i audition for your shakespearean plays
@lynnesbian *buys out the whole theater for me and my polycule*
@lynnesbian my favorite question is "Please touch your inserted Security Key"
@lynnesbian fun fact, in this case, you may actually better off not setting security questions (or setting them to. Gibberish) because if you have your mygov account deleted and you have to recreate it, you'll need to answer up to date security questions to re-link your services (although this may involve calling a government department if you can't remember your tfn etc which is not really reccomended? Because calling up sucks!)
@smouldery i made up fake questions and answers and stored them in my password manager uwu💮
*setting up an account over a phone voice*
me: my email is lynne at lynnesbian dot space
representative: got it, bin at lynne is a disgrace dot com
@ben fun fact: my email provider offers three frontends, and the horse one is way too long for at least one of them, and the support people were like "buddy, you knew what you were getting into"
customer service cw
@lynnesbian "uhh give me a second this is my first day... Sorry.... *types your email in wrong ten times* sorry can I please put you on hold........."
<five minutes pass>
"hi sorry... We need to uh... Check your id...."
(to be clear, the csr isn't at fault the training is just awful and it's a shit job)
@lynnesbian I was always weirded out by “who was your first kiss” as a security question but now that you put it this way at least that one isn’t gonna be different in the future
@lynnesbian though I still do not know the name of the girl I made out with while drunk in high school so this isn’t helpful at all
@lynnesbian gonna start putting “my wife, of course. Disgusting!” as the answer for these until it disappears as an option
@lynnesbian the other day i signed up for something where one of the preset security questions was "what is my security question"
@lynnesbian my nickname was literally loser and i didnt forget. I also had no friends lol
even for questions with specific answers i’m always like “do i include the state?” or “do i abbreviate ‘road’?”
there are only like 10 security questions across all websites so i wouldn’t be surprised if you could guess which questions those are for
@lynnesbian (there's a post I made at some point about it but) I love* it when they ask things like what your first car was. As if the people signing up for fxghing, LEGO.com or something, not only HAVE a car, but have HAD a FIRST car.
* I don't love it
"what is your husband's middle name"
the virgin mary: 😕
Try asking these questions of people born in Iran or Nigeria, prior to 1970. Some questions are so culturally biased as to be irrelevant.
@lynnesbian Nobody has ever told anyone in the world where they grew up or what their childhood pet was or who their mum is
You realize that your answers always have to be something completely out of context, right?
