A security tip…
When responding to those password security questions, in particular, “what is the name of your pet?”, don’t use the name of a pet fish. Because you know what? Your fish will probably die long before you need the security hint, and you’re sure to forget what you gave as a response!
“Pet name. Hmmm, we don’t have any pets! Was it that dog we had when I was little? Nope, that didn’t work. Wait, maybe I misspelled it. Nope, that wasn’t it either. That puppy that I got to name? Nope, that wasn’t it. I probably didn’t use any of my sister’s cats. And I can’t remember what I named that hamster or those turtles. I give up, good thing they have this ‘click to have security hint mailed to you’ link!”
