    First thing you have to do is to move to the Security info page on your handset. There you can go for the option labeled ‘Add’. There you can see a drop down list of the preset security questions on the account. You can choose the convenient question from among them in the drop down menu. Now you will be given a text box where you can provide the apt answer for the question which is unidentifiable for third party people. Make sure that the provided password is good before confirming the decision. Once you are confirmed, you can tap on the ‘Save’ option to save the changes made to the account settings.

    Hi.
    To get started with adding account security info, follow these steps:
    1. Sign In to your account using your Windows Live ID email and password.
    2. On your account page, under Account Security, you will see the Security Info section.
    3. Select the "Manage" link.

    Security Question - This is a validation question. You can select from several questions and provide the answer that only you would know.
    >>Select Add New.
    >>Select a security question.
    >>Type your answer to the security question.
    >>Click the Save button.

    Note that after creating a new Windows Live account, you have 14 days to add, remove, or change password reset information without required confirmation. Once a Windows Live account is in service for more than 14 days, password reset information settings will require confirmation through existing configurations before they can be set as confirmed on the account.

    Thank you.
