Confused about Security Images on Websites

Verizon Login

Do you get confused with security images on “secure” websites?

Above is my Verizon account. After I give it my account number, and before I type my password, it gives me this picture of a windmill. It tells me not to proceed if I don’t recognize the windmill as the picture I chose.

Does it not realize that every bank, every account, that also uses these silly pictures has different pictures. Windmills, mountains, sunsets, flowers, what have you. I can’t remember what picture I chose with dozens of sites.

Therefore – these security images are completely useless.
