Like many iPhone or Android phone users, you have probably already had the unpleasant surprise of ending up with a salty invoice, directly debited from your bank account by the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
Most of the time, this type of mishap is due to:
- purchases of applications or complete games that a loved one has made without asking your consent
- or in-app purchases (also called in-app purchases) of a paid improvement that more and more free games or applications offer to buy without even leaving the app.
- Open them
Settings on your iPhone.
- Click on your name and then on the section
iTunes Store and App Store.
- Click on Password settings (unless Face ID or Touch ID are already activated to secure your purchases).
- Click on Always demand so that a password is requested each time you, your children or your loved ones make a purchase on your iPhone.
- Click on Require after 15 minutes so that password protection remains valid for 15 minutes after the last entry.
- Open your application
- Click on the icon Menu at the top left of the screen then click on the link
- Pull down the menu Parameters up to the section User controls.
- Then click Require authentication for purchases.
In the window Authentication required, choose your protection mode:
- Click on For all purchases via Google Play on this device so that a password is requested each time a purchase is made on your phone via the Play Store.
- Click on Every 30 minutes so that password protection remains valid for 30 minutes after the last entry.
- Click on Never to not secure your purchases by password.
To protect yourself from unexpected purchase invoices, all you have to do is specify your password and validate by clicking on the button. OK.
