Creating and Updating Your Questions and Answers Profile
To register with password Manager, you need to create your personal Questions and Answers profile. A Questions and Answers profile (Q&A profile) is a series of security questions to which you specify your private answers. Later, you will provide your answers to the security questions when using the Self-Service site to reset you forgotten passwords or unlock your account. When you create or update your Q&A profile, ensure that nobody knows the correct answers to the Q&A profile questions but you.
