Hello,
I've started learning Asp.net and have a question about membership.
How do I turn off security question option when you create account?
(Do I set up in machine.config or web.config???)
If I turn off, how do I recover password and what would be the options to recover? (type e-mail and send password via e-mail?)
Thank you

In the web.config file for the membership section set the requiresQuestionAndAnswer to false.

Example:
<membership defaultProvider="MyMembership">
      <providers>
        <add
          name="MyMembership"
          type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider"
          connectionStringName="con"
          requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"
          requiresUniqueEmail="false" />
      </providers>
    </membership>
