Apple ID security questions are used to provide you with a secondary method to identify yourself online or when contacting Apple Support. Security questions are designed to be memorable to you but hard for anyone else to guess. When used in conjunction with other identifying information, they help Apple verify that you're the person requesting access to your account.

You might be asked to answer one or more of your security questions before you can change your password or other account information, view your device details, or make an iTunes purchase from a new device.

If you don't want security questions or you're concerned about forgetting the answers, you can set up two-step verification or two-factor authentication. With two-step verification and two-factor authentication, you don't need security questions to secure your account or verify your identity.
