Question
(This is not a spam question or a homework question)
I was wondering would you please explain to me in a simple way that I can understand: why do computers only give you three attempts to put in the correct password or a answer to your security question?

Thanks

Answer
Apple computers don't limit number of attempts to enter a password.
Website may limit it. It's for your protection and prevents somebody from trying to guess your password. For password owners there is usually a way to restore forgotten password.
