Those Security Questions….

So I’m logging into my bank and you know it’s that time again; new password and 3 new security questions. I’m reading through the security questions and they are different every time they have to be reset. Mother’s maiden name, Spouse’s father’s name, what high school did you attend are all ones we’re used to seeing. But this last couple of rounds they’re getting more specific. Grandfather’s middle name (Mother’s side), Mother’s Birthday (mm/dd) and so forth.

What occurred to me as I’m trying to pick one out of a dozen for each of the three is how much potential data these guys are collecting about you over time. The caveat is how many use real life answers??

I know I don’t.
