I was signing up for UPS my choice and they asked me some security questions.
It asked me questions that signified that it was able to figure out:
- Who my father is and when my father was born.
- My past addresses.
- What year I graduated high school.
I called up UPS technical support and they told me this information is pulled from public records. The information they had was: My Name, my address, and my birthdate.
These questions seem completely useless from a security standpoint. If they can obtain that information, so can another person. In order to better understand this security concern, I was hoping someone here can tell me more about these records.
