Hello,
i have a question about security issu. I own a gmail account and have securised it with telephon number and backup email. I can not remember if i set or not a secret question a long time ago. Could you confirm me that the security question has been removed and can not be used anyway ?
Best regards !

Google no longer uses a security question on Google accounts.  They have not deleted existing ones, but you can no longer add or modify them (only delete).

Thank you very much for your help,
could you confirm me that it's not the only information asked for recovery ?
In my case my account is also securised by phone number and a back up email. So if somebody want to hack my account, do you confirm me that it is impossible just only with the secret question ?

Thank in advance

Best regards

What exactly are you disagreeing with? You asked how to delete the Security Question and I posted above. And here is a screenshot of what the page looks like.
