  1. The tab to remove password for free downloads is greyed out. I can’t enable or disable it. Still stuck. Tried managing cards, subscriptions, everything.

    1. Are you using Touch ID on your device? If you have Touch ID enabled, none of the settings will show up at all, so first, go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and turn off Touch ID. Then go to Settings > Profile > Media, and Purchases > Password Settings again and toggle off the Require Password option under Free Downloads. Once done, you can go back to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and enable Touch ID. Hope this helps.

  2. Thank for the above information.

    However, nothing seems to work on my phone. It appears to be permanently stuck in the Verification Required loop. I tried all of the above but to no avail. I even tried adding a credit card, but this didn’t help. I deleted the card, and this didn’t help either. The quest continues!

  3. Hi! I can’t remember my Apple ID password so I can not download apps. I tried to do as u said but when I click on password and security, in settings, the box pops up wanting me to enter my Apple ID password. So I can’t even get in there to change the setting. What else can I do?

  4. If you’ve forgotten your Apple ID password, it’s essential to reset it. Please go to and follow the on-screen instructions to set a new password.
