    Stepped-up security measures by Apple because of scammers messing with user accounts.

    Hi Mike - I would strongly suggest that you remove your email address from 'public view' unless you want to enjoy a flood of junk messages; scam harvesting software just loves to find these openly displayed email addresses - :)

    About to reply to your previous post but you obviously figured it out - great! :)

    For those who are also wondering, simply go to 'Settings' and select from the left-sided choices 'Edit Profile' - :thumbs:

    Were these security questions something you set up before or did this prompt have you do that? Wondering because there are several people who have had this happen now and I have not and I do not remember setting up security questions.

    I don't see Edit Profiles when I go to Settings. Where do I find that option.
    Thanks for your help.
