- Secret Question / Answer:
The secret question and answer (SQA) on an account cannot be reset. This is a potential vulnerability, as others could use this information to take your account. The safest accounts will not have a SQA set, the next best situation is to know the SQA.
SMS is a type of account protection based on a mobile phone number, which can be reset with access to or cooperation from the currently listed number. The original number can sometimes help with account recovery. The safest accounts will not have SMS set, the next best situation is to know the original # used on the account.
The "Verified Email" on an account can be reset. The original email can sometimes help with account recovery. The safest accounts will either have un-verified email (allowing you to set the first verified email) or give you full access to the original email account. The next best situation is to know the original email used on the account.
- Credit card & Billing:
This is currently the most important factor in account security. When attempting account recovery, you'll be asked for the last 4 digits and billing address of the original and/or previous credit card. The safest accounts will have never used a credit card, the next best situation is to know the last 4 & billing of each card used.
