Remove your credit card information from your iTunes Account

OK

so i never had any credit card info on one of my accounts..

but after logging in the other day apple tried to apply my card info from a hardware purchase...

I couldn't even download a free app without verifying my card info..

solution to remove all card info from the account:-

in iTunes log into your account

in the store menu select view my account

then select edit payment information or billing

at the top you see all the credit card select radio buttons
and at the end is option NONE

select this and you will not be able to make any pay for purchases in iTunes...
but free purchases will still work...

I hope this is helpful

Please note that you can still redeem Gift cards to make pay purchases !!

No. Not to my knowledge. Remember, iTunes was developed first as a music purchasing store when it was rolled out in 2003'ish and then everything else began to get tacked on to this.

If anyone is truly worried about their charge card being hacked or stolen, remember, you ARE NOT responsible for any changes on the account unless you authorize them.

If someone gets ahold of my AMEX and runs up a $1,000 tab, I don't care. I'm not responsible for it.

The rules are a little different for ATM cards. As these are linked directly to your banking accounts I would strongly advise you NEVER use your bank issues Debit card for any transaction. I only use mine to extract hard currency. Otherwise all purchases go on the charge / credit cards and they're paid off at the end of the month before interest can accrue.

Yes, I understand this takes a certain degree of self discipline but it's one of the few ways I make it certain my banking information will never make it into the webspace.


That said, if you are truly worried - purchase a $10 AMEX or VISA gift card and use this to establish your account.

Just to add my $0.02, iTunes will let you use PayPal as another level of security. I have a credit card in my PayPal account that I use, and then use PayPal for my iTunes account. Both PayPal and the credit card company (Amex) will fight for you if you ever have a problem. I know PayPal isn't 100% safe (anyone can get hacked), but I trust them over giving my credit card info to a company that probably worries more about selling Lady Gaga singles and in-app purchases for Candy Crush than securing my account info.
