    I am aware why they have decided to put security questions on Facebook. However, I never knew that it is not possible to change security questions. Good thing I was able to check your site today for some new blogs. Thanks for the update.

      Harsh, that is what we are trying to convey. Facebook no longer offers the option of changing the security question and the reason is mentioned in the post.

    What to do if someone messed up with your security question when the account was hacked? I mean the question was not set up but someone did it instead after hacking into account. Now they track your information invisibly. Suggestions?

    Hey Prince,that is a tough case. Change your email, username and password. Once, these are done hide the email in privacy settings and delete the previous email so the person who knows you're security question cannot enter the right first indentity. If the problem is not solved, contact Facebook Team. Our next post would cover on how to change facebook password . Thanks for visiting by.

    Well this is kind of silly. So if you know their security question, you can just continuously access their account.
