Can you make the security question optional for user enrollment?

When a new user first logs in and is presented with the welcome page, they are also prompted for several password self service options. Can the required fields here be toggled? We're specifically interested in making the security question optional.

The security question element of the user activation is something we have by design and it is there for security reasons. We cannot disable this feature at the moment.  

You can suggest this on the Okta Community by using the 'Suggest a feature' option at the bottom of the Okta admin console. Features suggested in our community are reviewed and can be voted and commented on by other members of the community, therefore making it much easier for the engineering team to understand the priorities that you have for feature requests. From there, the PM team will review the top 30 most voted upon ideas each month and provide feedback/roadmap status on these via the forum.

Thank you for choosing Okta!
