  • JetBlue Security Question Asks: "What's the Name of Your Favorite Child?" (REAL)

Signing up for anything online can be a real pain. Companies are always asking security questions in order to keep their accounts safe. Well, JetBlue seems to have a very interesting set of security questions it offers its passengers when signing up online. At this point, we're all used to answering those security questions on websites, like "What was your first concert?" But JetBlue has taken it to another level. One of the possible security questions you can answer for your JetBlue account is: "What's the name of your favorite child?" The question was first brought to public attention by a screenshot posted to Twitter on Sunday by user @_lanaloo, who commented about how "savage" JetBlue was in asking this question. JetBlue responded in the perfect way. It's going to be bad news when JetBlue inevitably gets hacked and people can find out what their parents answered.
