What do you do if you’ve forgotten the answers to your Apple ID security questions? You know – the ones you set a long while ago and forgot all about and then get prompted to answer every once in a while when trying to install a new app.
Or better yet, what do you do when you’ve forgotten the answers AND you no longer have access to your recovery email account that you setup for use with these. That’s exactly the situation I see come up terribly often in Apple support forums – and also one that I experienced first-hand when it happened to my 10 year old daughter. She forgot the answer to one particular security question and had deleted the Google account that was her rescue email.
Well, happily the solution is easy and straightforward. You just get in touch with Apple Support and ask for help with Apple ID Account Security. You start by going to this link to find the Apple support page for your country. Then click the link to ‘Start your support request online’.
