    I know it's kinda weird though and I'm even surprised I for the answers to my Apple ID security questions. Please is there a way to reset the security questions or how do I go about it?

    I'm not sure what you're asking. What do you mean "rest the security questions"?

    Yes there is but I would advise using two step authentication instead. But you need to go to appleid.apple.com.

    Two step authentication is extremely easy to set up. Additionally, using strong passwords will mitigate any risk. Coupled, I feel absolutely secure in how I use my iPhone.

    Lastly, Apple has already limited the number of attempts at a password in Find my iPhone.

    I still don't know what the OP means by "rest" the security questions. Do they mean "not use"? Or bypass?

    He most likely forgot them. You can reset them but you need to know them to reset them.

    In that case I can't reset them. Why? Because I don't remember them

    Okay I will do that. The reason why I need such a help is that sometimes if I try to download some apps from the AppleStore it redirects me to enter enter the answers to my security questions which i have forgotten n don't try downloading at all. Mostly are paid apps that are free for a limited time

    That's strange, I've never ever had to answer my security questions when downloading apps, paid or free.

    It's only happens just for some paid apps that are available for free for a limited time. Never happens to any of the paid n free apps. This only has happened 3 or 4 times all paid apps that are available for free on a limited time . Really? Like I'm the only person having this weird "security question" drama?

    I've downloaded a few of those free for a limited time apps before and never had to answer those questions. If I remember correctly you live in China? Maybe it's a foreign thing, idk.

    Yeah I was thinking of that too. Maybe my location and that of my Apple ID are not the same country. Yeah I live in China using Apple ID US. Maybe that can be the cause of it.
