iTunes Surprises

Have you ever taken your eyes off your iPad/iPhone, having lent it to a child? The temporary peace and quiet is then found to have been at a price because the little darling/big monster has chosen to avail themselves of in App purchases. 

Here’s a simple way to make sure it doesn’t happen again:

Go to Settings and then choose General and Restrictions. Now enable restrictions; you will be required to enter and repeat a four digit passcode (probably a good idea to use a different passcode to that used on your device).  Towards the bottom of the screen you will see ‘In-App Purchases’ set this to ‘OFF’. This will have the desired effect at this level, although you could additionally set ‘Require Password’ to ‘Immediately’.

This should ensure fewer surprises in your iTunes account
