Google Play Store: Block your Android against in-app purchases.

Activating Google’s account protection measures

Google has a good few ways of ensuring that your device is  protected against unintended purchases and the best way is requiring a password before any purchase can be made. There are a couple of options here, so the Play Store can be set to require a password for every purchase, every 30 minutes, or never. Obviously, we recommend setting it to every time and it’s super easy to get it set up.

  • Open the Google Play Store on your device.
  • Tap the hamburger menu (the three lines) on the left side of the search bar.
  • Scroll down to Settings.
  • Select the Require Authentication For Purchases option.
  • Ensure the first option, indicating all purchases, is selected.

 

STEP 1: Find the Settings option under the Google Play Menu

STEP 2: Choose the “Require Authentication For Purchases” option

STEP 3: Select the first option for the highest level of protection

That’s it! Both your Google and bank account are now safe from ridiculous bills generated by overspending on items that don’t even exist in the real world. Now you have no one to blame but yourself when you read your bank statements. Just stay away from Pokémon Go, eh?
