    Do you have an alternate email account set up? If so, go to iforgot.apple.com and reset from there

    manage your account > sign in > Password & security > Send reset security email> Change your question. I have attached an image for help. Hope this helpsCapture1.JPG

    Apple workers are looking for a solution to this, they tell me, but I asked them back when I first posted on this discussion. They're keeping up with me, but they have yet to find an answer. Ask them this question yourself and if it takes long, like me, then atleast you'll get free songs or videos out of it.

    That's exactly how I feel. You can purchase things on a device or laptop that you have previously used, just not new ones that require the passwords.

    Well, I try to buy games, and always ask me about password, and  type my password and after that they ask me about security question, so I don't remember the answers, so can't buy

    Any update about this issue? I just bought an iPad mini, Im an Apple lover, I have the iphone and the MacBook but now I wanna buy apps from my iPad but since I dont remember my security questions (answers) I just cant do it. In other forums they say theres an option in Manage Account, but as you all can see its not even available, you go there but the option doesnt show.

    What am I supposed to do?

    Same problem.  There seems to be no way to change your security questions even though my iTunes account is so old that I never had them in the past.  Now I can't get my new iPhone5 to update things that were on the old iPhone4.

    I have tried this, and verified my rescue email.  When I log onto my Apple ID account, there is no option below to reset security questions.  Now I have changed my password because that is what the FAQs say to do, even though I preferred my old 6 digit numerical password, and now they have to be 8 characters with a mix of numeric and upper & lower case alpha.  When I tried to call Apple Support, I get a message they are closed for the holidays.  Another reason why Apple s****!!!!
