In this post, we will talk about how to find security questions and their answers in Windows 10. When you install a newer version of Windows 10 and create a new user account, it asks you to set up 3 security questions (like “What was your first pet’s name?”, “What was your childhood nickname?”, and so on). These security questions can basically help you get access to your PC if you forget your Windows login password. But, what if you forgot the security questions which you have selected or the answers for the security questions. Well, this tutorial will show you how to exactly find all your security questions and their answers in your Windows 10 PC.

This software can easily find out all the security questions and their answers which you have set up while creating a new account.
