How to Authorize or De-authorize Computer for iTunes Store Purchases?

let’s learn to authorize your computer before using it to sync or play what you download from the iTunes Store.

Consider that, when you authorize your Mac or PC, it means that you give it permission to access your music, movies, and other content. Let’s check some points in this regard:

  • You can authorize up to 5 computers, it means that you can play your content on 5 different computers.
  • You can’t authorize a computer from another computer or from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Before you sell or give away your computer or send it in for service, don’t forget to DE authorize your computer to eliminate its access to protected purchases. For other devices, learn how to see where you’re signed in or remove devices.

Moreover, store availability and features might be different by country or region.

Authorizing a Mac or PC

First of first  to  authorize a Mac, it’s a must to update it to the latest version of macOS. On a PC, update to the latest version of iTunes for Windows. Follow these steps as bellow:

  1. On a Mac, open the Music app, Apple TV app, or Apple Books app. On a PC, open iTunes for Windows.
  2. Sign in with your Apple ID.
  3. In the menu bar on your Mac or PC, choose Account > Authorizations > Authorize This Computer.

When you’re asked to authorize your computer again, it won’t use a new authorization. Apple ID uses the same authorization for the same computer.

  2. Sign in with your Apple ID.
  3. In the menu bar on your Mac or PC, choose Account > View My Account.
  4. Sign in with your Apple ID.
  5. On the Account Information page, scroll to the Apple ID Summary section. You’ll see the number of computers that you’ve authorized with your Apple ID. You can’t see the names of those computers. If you haven’t authorized 2 or more computers, you won’t see this section.

  6. If the number of authorized computers listed is more than what you expect, you might not have deauthorized the computers that you no longer use, gave away, or sold. You need to deauthorize all of your computers and then authorize each one that you still use.

Deauthorize a computer

  1. On a Mac, open the Music app, Apple TV app, or Apple Books app. On a PC, open iTunes for Windows.
  2. From the menu bar at the top of your computer screen, choose Account > Authorizations > Deauthorize This Computer.
  3. Sign in with your Apple ID.
  4. Choose Deauthorize.

when you run out of authorizations, deauthorize all

in case one of your 5 authorizations is on a computer that you don’t use anymore, deauthorize it again. If you sold or gave away a computer that’s used one of your 5 authorizations, you need to select Deauthorize All on the Account Information page. Then authorize each computer that you are using right now.

All about authorizing other Apple devices

You don’t need to authorize your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or other Apple device. These devices don’t use your available authorizations. Let’s learn how to check your Apple ID device list to see where you’re signed in and how to remove a device.
