How To Authorize A Computer on iTunes

Authorization is the process of specifying permissions to particular users only. If we authorize something, no other person has the right to access. For example, in Banks, only the bank members have the right to access the bank data. No customer ever gets such privileges. Authorization on iTunes is a feature for Windows 10 and MacOS. It is because if the user is an iPad or iPhone user, there is no requirement of authorizing or deauthorizing your device on iTunes.

Here, we will learn the steps through which we can authorize our Windows 10 OS on iTunes. We will also learn the method to deauthorize a computer system from iTunes.
