    Default Why is my Apple ID already taken?

    I tried to make one but it says that my email has already been taken, however I have made no apple id account. I reset the password from my email but it wont let me do anything without the security question answers, which I do not know the answers to because I did not make them. What can I do?

    You should contact Apple directly. Someone, either on purpose or inadvertently, has apparently used your email address to create an Apple ID.

    Is it possible that you created the account a long time ago and have since forgotten?
    Is it possible that a family member used your email address to create an Apple ID?

    Regardless, only Apple can help you with this.

    Otherwise, just use a different email address.
