Warning: Double-check your answers and ensure that you remember them. In case of necessity, you must provide answers to these questions exactly as they were written in the fields. If you forget your answers, this will make the process of restoring access to your account more difficult.

Tip: When choosing answers for your security questions, consider using information that cannot be found on your social media profiles. For example, do not answer the question “who was your best friend in school?” with a person's name but consider using his nickname instead.

 5. Click Save.
