    Welcome to the Apple Community.

    Start here, and reset your password, you will receive an email with your new password, then go tomanage your account > Password and Security and change your security questions.

    If that doesn't help you might try contacting Apple through iTunes Store Support

    I have the same problem.  Everywhere I click, including all of the suggestions here in the support forums keep taking me to a place where I have to answer the questions before I can do anything.

    I got a reply from my service request.  The support person said they were working on an 'upgrade to their security tools'.  Hopefully they'll get it fixed soon.

    This is the reply I received, and it worked for me:


    I'm sorry that you weren't able to reset your security questions. I know it must be frustrating not being able to remember the answers, and I will certainly get you to the correct team to help.

    For security reasons, you'll need to contact our Account Security team.

    You can speak to an Account Security Advisor by calling our AppleCare technical support team. To find the right phone number for your country, see this article:

    Contacting Apple for support and service

    When you call, ask to speak to the Account Security team.
    They will need to verify  two of the following: Device serial number( if one is set up with your account information), one security question answer, and/ or a credit card number you have on file.

    ****( Add if Credit card is not on file) **

    I see that you do not have credit card information on your account, you can add this by :

    1) Make sure you are using the latest version of iTunes. It can be downloaded free of charge from the Apple website:


    2) Verify that you have an active network connection and open iTunes.

    3) From the Store pull-down menu at the top, select Sign In.

    4) Enter your account name and password then click Sign In.

    5) From the Store menu, select View My Account.

    6) Enter your account name and password again, then click View My Account.

    7) On your Apple Account Information page, click Edit Payment Information. Here you can add your card.

      You may remove this after speaking to the Account Security team, and verifying your account with them.

    That is what I eventually had to do.  The stupid part was that I had to add a credit card to the account (something I didn't want to do) and have the person on the phone use that to verify my identity in order to reset the security questions.  I was able to remove the card right after that and get the questions reset.


    The good news is that the new security questions aren't as stupid as the old ones, and this time I wrote down my answers.  :-)
