Setting up Your Security Question

When you access WFDSS for the first time, you will be asked to create a security question and answer. Your security question helps to validate your identity in case you need the system or Help Desk to reset your password. This question should be something that only you know the answer to, but can easily remember.

Note: When you enter your security answer, you must type it exactly the way you did when you created the question. In addition, the security questions are separate for Production and Training.

To set up your security question:

  1. Login to WFDSS for the first time. The Change Password page opens.
  2. Change your password from the system-generated password. Once you click, Change Password, the Create a Security Question page appears.
  3. Create a new security question.

    Examples of good security questions:

    • What was the name of your first pet?
    • Who was your first grade teacher?
    • What's your favorite national park?
    • What was the name of your first pet?
  4. Enter the response to the question.
  5. Re-enter your response.
  6. Click Save. A message appears confirming that your security question/answer has been changed.
