    Meg answered your question. You must supply those in order to continue using iTunes. It's for when you forget you pass word apple can make sure it's you. Nough said.

    I think that you should simply refuse to buy anything from iTunes.  How dare they attempt to prevent others from accessing your account?  It's YOUR inalienble right to allow the world to use your account.

    My answer still hold true as do most of the responses you got.

     

    I don't know what your problem is but I can't call my mom as she is deceased.

     

    We all tried to make things better but to no avail.

     

    Good Luck.

    APp store insists that answer security questions. I do not want this. How can I get around that window?

    My speculation is that there are increased rates of refund/chargeback calls from iTunes accounts with one-click purchase on, Apple is using this security measure as a preventive tool to prevent excessive chargebacks & refunds by making sure one-click users are absolutely rational about their purchases.

     

    Do you have one click on in your case?

     

    I do not experience this issue as my one-click is off, purchase of apps be it free or paid only only requires password verification in my case. All I have to is simply to re-type my CCV if I were to use my iTunes account on a new device.

     

    My advice: Turn one-click off.

    Uh, I don't think I ever replied to any post of yours, but you're certainly welcome

    What is it you are expecting help with?  We're all just users.  Apple put a new security process in place.  For me, it's not an issue.  It's actually welcome.  For you, it's clearly a monumental issue.  But my question remains the same.  What is it that you think anyone on this forum can offer you?

    Better yet...

     

    Favorite car?  blue&92

     

    first teacher?  blue&92.

     

    city parents met?  blue&92

    if this works it is just proof that the policy doesn't work (i haven't tried it).

    What policy doesn't work? Providing letter and numbers (sometimes known as words but they don't need to be actual words) as an answer?

     

    don't even have itunes installed on the ipad2 in questio

    Yes you do.
