If you are an iTunes user, you might have heard of myFiarTunes. It was a popular DRM removal freeware that can remove the digital rights management (DRM) from protected iTunes songs. As I understand it, this program has stopped being updated for years, just like Requiem. Even though you have downloaded myFairtunes successfully from other websites, you might fail to use it to remove DRM from iTunes purchased songs or Apple Music. 


In this guide, I will tell you more details about using myFairTunes and most importantly, the best myFairTunes alternative will be introduced to help you bypass the annoyed FairPlay DRM.

Part 1. What's myFairTunes and How It Works?

myFairTunes was once a well-known iTunes DRM removal program. It can unlock DRM from the encrypted M4P songs and albums purchased before 2009. Basically, there are two reasons why myFairTunes stands out from the crowd. First, it's free of charge, anyone can use it for free. Second, it can strip DRM from your iTunes purchased songs without re-encoding. That being said, its conversion process is pretty much lossless so you can keep the original quality of your iTunes songs.


myFairTunes is quite easy-to-use. When you run the software on your computer, it will search through the entire iTunes collection and locate the songs that bear DRM protection. Then, you can click "Start" button to convert the DRM-strapped M4P files to plain MP3.


Is myFairTunes Still Usable Now?


Although myFairTunes is outdated and has not been updated since the release of Version 7.0.2, it is still usable. However, it only works under certain conditions. For example, in order to use myFairTunes to remove DRM from iTunes M4P songs, you have to downgrade your current iTunes version to 7.5.0 or earlier, or the myFairTunes 7.0.2 will not work. And there are other disadvantages about using myFairTunes:

• It cannot be installed on Mac, only Windows based computer is supported;

• It requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 installed;

• It cannot remove DRM from Apple Music;

• myFairTunes doesn't work with iTunes 12, it can only work under iTunes 10.7.5 or earlier.
