How to set up your security questions and answers

Security questions are a supplemental way for Amazon to verify your identity. We will present security questions only when circumstances call for an extra level of identity verification.

To register your security questions and answers, follow these steps:

  1. Open your Seller Central Login Settings page.
  2. Click the Change button in the Security Questions section.
  3. Select a question and enter your answer to that question. Repeat with different questions and answers for Questions 2 and 3.
  4. Enter your password and click Update.


Tips to help you choose good security questions and answers:

  • Choose questions that only you know the answer to and that are not associated with your password.
  • Choose answers that are memorable, but not easy to guess or research.


Tips for keeping your security questions and answers secure:

  • Never tell anyone your security questions and answers, and do not write them down.
  • Never send your security questions or answers through e-mail.
  • Never reply to e-mail inquiries about your security questions and answers, even if the message looks authentic.
  • Periodically change your security questions and answers.


How to fix an error

If you get an error message for your answer to a security question, the answer you entered does not match the answer you registered for that question. Please try again, making sure of the following:

  • Don't add extra spaces. (Copy and paste sometimes adds extra spaces).
  • Use upper- and lower-case letters exactly as you did when you registered your answer.
