Tips to stop children running up big bills in App Purchases on the iTunes Store 

  • Don’t give your children your password to your iPhone or iPad .Each time they want to download or purchase something, it will ask for the Apple ID password. Now you have to enter your password every time.
  • Next go to Settings > General > Restrictions, and then change the ‘Require Password’ setting to ‘Immediately’. Now, every time your child goes to buy something, whether it is an app or in-app purchase, they’ll be asked to type in the password before they can progress further.
  • Parents should also look at the restrictions menu so that children can only access age appropriate material for them
  • You can also setup a pin code so that the children can’t access the settings and also turn off in app purchases
