A system of authenticating an account user includes an electronic device having a processor and a non-transitory computer-readable storage medium. The system causes an interface to be outputted by the electronic device that includes a graphical element via which a user of the electronic device who is attempting to access an electronic account can initiate a digital history verification process. The system receives a selection of the graphical element, accesses an indication of one or more electronic sources of digital history information and receives digital history information of the user that has been collected by the electronic sources. The system receives one or more verification questions that are based on at least a portion of the digital history information. The system receives from the user answers to the verification questions. In response to determining that every answer is correct, the system grants the user access to the electronic account.
