Was updating some iOS apps, when the App Store (assuming it was the app store), requested my password a second time, and then proceeded to request security questions and answers... 

 

It looked like pushing, and since I'd not heard of Apple instituting this procedure I elected not to input the information.

 

Feedback submitted to Apple on this...   Anyone else seen this before?  Has Apple advertised this?

 

Thx

Bob

HI Bob...

 

It's not phishing. Apple does ask to verify the answers to your security questions randomly.

 

You can change the answers to your security questions anytime >  Frequently Asked Questions About Apple ID

 

And change your Apple ID password on a timely basis >  Apple - Support - Apple ID
