What's up with the security question? The first thing I'm asked is "What was the telephone number you grew up with". Well, I'm not about to answer that! My step-dad still uses that number and would not be very kind to anyone he doesn't know who happens to call. How do I get a different question??
If any HP employee actually called that number they would deserve the richest tongue lashing your step-dad could deliver.
There would be absolutely no reason to call it, though. Very few of us would know who has that number at this time. I wouldn't worry about it.
I'm very very very unwilling to give out that type of personal info. Maybe I could make one up....(didn't think about that! lol)
Or maybe not. It said it was incorrect. (not a made up number either, just not mine)
If you are answering it that means you have already given it when you set up the security. You will either have to answer correctly and then re-set to another question or go through HP.
I went back & got a different question. All done!

I'm planning an advice hub where somehow or other people will ask advice - the advice will be wacky - I think it would be great if I could get one or two other hubbers to also contribute their advice (on the same questions) and so instead of it just being my wacky advice, it could be two or three...

First, I want to apologize if you've heard this question a 1000 times before, but I'd be grateful if you could advise me from your experience.If I was to publish a large number of hubs across various topics, each targeting a well researched keyword/s, is it realistic to aim for an average daily...

Hi all, I'd like to call myself an amateur astronomer but I don't even have a telescope, I only have about 50 solar system apps that I study quite frequently. I do know quite a bit about the stars and the solar system and anytime I have an entire free night, I stay up until dawn...
