According to “TechWorld”, Apple appears to have enhanced its iTunes account security by asking users a series of security questions on their iOS devices.
Users are confronted with a "Security Info Required" prompt and asked to provide answers to their choice of three security questions. Users are also asked to provide a second email address that can be used if the one associated with their Apple ID is compromised.
Once the user has entered their questions, answers and a backup email address, Apple then sends an email to verify the information provided. The email states: "The rescue email address is dedicated your security and allows Apple to get in touch if any account questions come up, such as the need to reset or change your security questions. As promised, Apple will never send you any announcements or marketing messages to this address".
The Next Web claims that when a user makes a purchase they will be asked the chosen security questions.
The changes are likely to be an attempt to curb fraud and phishing attempts that have hijacked iTunes accounts.
