ok
Mac Support Specialist: Karthik, Mac Enthusiast replied 1 month ago

What I would need you to do is get in contact with our Account Security Team over the phone. They will need to verify your account information. They can then look into getting these questions reset for you. You can call Applecare at 1-***-***-**** and ask to be transferred to the Account Security Team. When you contact Apple Support on phone or online, They may ask you for a 4-digit PIN to verify your identity. At that time you need to provide this Temporary Support PIN is 2482. Note: This PIN is valid 30 minutes

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
