Manage Security Questions in WHMCS

By on April 4th, 2016

WHMCS is a billing, client and support management system for online businesses. But, mostly it is used to handle the web hosting business. It is a kind of business that requires too much security because the sites are important to customers or clients. Sometimes, we have to verify the identity of a customer to make sure they own the account so that we can allow them to perform some dangerous actions.

WHMCS provides us a simple interface to manage security questions in our system. In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to manage security questions in WHMCS to improve the security of the customer’s accounts. To make this process easier to understand, I have attached screenshots with every step of the tutorial. So, Let’s get started with the tutorial.

Log in to the admin panel of your WHMCS account. Then, hover on the Setup option given in the main menu. Then, click on the Other >> Security Questions option to navigate to the security question manager. See the following screenshot to find the correct option.
