How to Add Security Questions for Local Account in Windows 10

Security questions are a traditional way to add extra protection for your sensitive data. According to Microsoft, if you find yourself unable to remember your password on the lock screen, you will see a link to reset your password, whereupon clicking it, you'll be prompted to enter the answers to your security questions.

The user can select three of six predefined questions and provide answers. In Windows 10 build 17063, the questions are as follows:

   

  • What was your first pet's name?
