Why do I need to enter CC security code for free apps?

    Not sure if this is the board for this or not, if not feel free to let me know where it should be posted.

    I have a work supplied iPhone 5, first off, I found out I had to create an iTunes account just to install apps, even free ones. Don't like that, but c'est la vie, it is what it is. Then I find out they want a CC#, even though I'm not buying apps, and sometimes I get apps installed by the company via airwatch, and I have to go through the tedious task of entering in my apple id and password several times, which is bad enough, but every single time I also have to dig out my CC and re enter the security code on it.

    Am I missing some setting somewhere on the phone that makes it so I am forced to do this all the time, or is Apple determined to make using the phone interface as user unfriendly as the (increasingly worse) iTunes app?

    thanks in advance.

    Just set up your iTunes account with a prepaid iTunes card instead of CC.
