If you’ve been wondering how to turn on in app purchases on your Apple iPhone or iPad, then you’ve come to the right place. In this article we’ll cover how to allow in app purchases, as well as how to use parental controls to restrict access to the App Store.
Enable parental controls
If you’re a parent and you’re worried that your child is spending too much money on in-app purchases, you can easily turn off these purchases. To do this, open the Settings app and select Restrictions. Most of the time, this is set to Off. In order to enable parental controls, you will have to enter a passcode. You’ll also see a list of active restrictions in the Allowed Content section.
You can also disable in-app purchases for your iPad. To do so, simply go into Settings -> General -> Restrictions and then tap Enable Restrictions. Once you’ve enabled this option, you’ll be able to see all apps that ask for in-app purchases. You can also prevent your kids from installing apps or downloading them. You can also restrict which apps your children can download, by setting a passcode or a password.
If you’re a parent, one of the best ways to prevent your children from making purchases is to set up Family Sharing. This feature will allow you to designate a user with parental controls who can authorize in-app purchases. This will prevent other users from making purchases and notify you whenever they attempt. If you’re worried that your child is going to buy things without your permission, you can review the purchase and sign it off using your Apple ID.
Another way to limit in-app purchases is to use Screen Time. Screen Time is a feature included in iOS 12. When set to on, Screen Time will prevent your children from making in-app purchases. You should also use a different password for this feature. This way, you can ensure that your child doesn’t spend money on things that are not safe for them.
You can enable parental controls for in app purchases on iOS 12 by going to Settings>General>General>Restrictions>Children>Parental Controls. Once you’ve done that, you can then set up a child’s Apple ID and set the limits that they can access. Besides setting the limits on in-app purchases, you can also set up limits on certain features and applications. For example, you can disable explicit content, in-app purchases, and photo sharing. You can also enable Guided Access, which locks the device when a child is inside an app and prevents them from exiting the app.
Require a password
When you are using your iPhone or iPad on iOS 12, you may find yourself being asked to enter your password repeatedly to make purchases. This can be annoying for a variety of reasons. Thankfully, there are some options to prevent the constant password prompt. Turn off Always Require to stop the App Store from requiring a password every time you make an in-app purchase.
To disable this feature, go to Settings > General > Restrictions. Tap the “Password Policy” option. Note that you cannot enable this feature on devices that have Touch ID. However, you can disable it if your device does not support Touch ID. If you are using an iPhone or iPad, disabling Touch ID will prevent this limitation.
Turning off the password requirement on the App Store is a simple process that should only take a few minutes. The exact steps will vary from device to device, but are generally the same. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully. Once you are satisfied with the result, click “Save” to exit out of the iTunes software.
If you don’t want to disable in-app purchases altogether, you can use the Google Play Store app to restrict purchases. However, you can only turn on this feature if you have access to an Apple ID that contains a password. If you’re concerned about your children gaining access to your iOS device, you can set up a parental account and require a password to make purchases in apps.
There are a few methods to disable the in-app purchase feature on iOS 12. You can either disable the feature completely or just disable it for individual apps. Then, you can turn it on and off again. However, if the feature is too restrictive, you can always change the password to prevent it from being used by someone who is not authorized to access the device.
Restrict access to the iTunes Store
If you want to limit what your children can access on the iTunes Store, you can turn on the Restrictions setting in iOS 12. You can also disable in-app purchases, installing apps, and deleting apps. In addition, you can disable bundled apps that are not necessary for your iPhone to operate. You can disable these apps from the Allowed Apps section of your settings. Once they are disabled, they will not appear on your home screen.
Restrictions have long been a feature of iOS, and many parents find them useful to control what their children can access. However, with the iOS 12 release, Apple has changed the way that restrictions work. Most restrictions are the same as before, but the overall approach has changed. For example, hiding an app now requires more work than it used to.
The first step is to disable any apps that are installed by default. Tap the switch to the Off position to disable an app. You can restore the app to your Home Screen after you disable it. Once you’ve done this, click on the Content & Restrictions button on the upper right corner of the screen. Once there, you’ll find a new screen that allows you to restrict access to the iTunes Store. You can also use the Allowed Store Content section to restrict access based on certain criteria.
Once you’ve enabled Content & Privacy Restrictions, you can restrict access to specific apps on your child’s device. You can also restrict in-app purchases and block explicit content. You can also use Content Restrictions to block access to websites that contain adult content.
