    First of all, Apple has never allowed apps purchased under one AppleID to be shared or merged with another AppleID. The new Family Share feature may help with this issue. If the Family Share feature does allow it, youre going to need to know the password and/or security question answers to validate your login.

    Now, you have forgotten the password and the answers to the security questions, but you expect Apple to just let you waltz in and get access to this account? Thats not going to happen. If they did, what would prevent any one from doing the same thing to your account? Its part of the security of iTunes and AppleID.

    I have to laugh when I hear people say they forgot their security question answers. I mean, "Who was your first grade teacher?" Or, "What is your pet's name?" shouldn't be too difficult. It always makes it sound suspicious. Sorry, but it does.

    Well I often make my security question answers nonsense-random lowercase, uppercase, numbers and symbols just like a password. So I don't remember them but I do put them in a password manager app.
