    Hi
    I’m wondering if my account has been hacked. I was just looking through my phone:
    Settings- Apple ID- payment and shipping.

    This is the tab that stores credit card information. The writing is in a foreign language which sometimes looks look like Chinese or Spanish. How can I set this to English?

    Is your billing address and shipping address in a country that uses English?
    If you're worried about unauthorized access to your account, change your password and tell no one what the new one is.

    Well with all due respect, your reply is neither helpful or informative- why even bother?

    Why do you think this is not helpful?
    If your shipping address (visible in Settings - Apple ID - Payment & Shipping) is not in a country that uses English, the information/language may change to the country you’re using there.

    Usually, you set your region in Settings - General - Language & Region. This will have an impact not only on your payment information, though, but the whole device.

    If you think that your Apple ID has been hacked, this will help:

    Do you mean it isn't always in another language?

    Do you mean it changes from Spanish to Chinese?
