    Hi there,

    I'd like to change the security question I originally created when setting up WordPress, I have searched through Google and WordPress forums to find out how to do this and no joy. Anybody got any ideas?

    Thank you
    Emma

    I don't believe WordPress supports security questions -- I've never been asked for one in any of the dozens of times I've installed the software.

    Is this a plugin you're using?

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply, no it's not a plugin, during the setup I was asked for a security question and just can't find where it's stored now.

    What happened was someone got into the admin page of a client's website, clicked 'lost password' and opted to answer the security question, which was something ridiculously easy that I just entered as a formality.
