    I have searched the forum and have not found if you can make a password on google play. It just seems that you should have to enter a password before each purchase. If you miss place your phone someone could purchase apps. A kid or guest using my phone could purchase apps without me knowing. My questions is there a way to have to enter a password to purchase apps. I know you can lock your phone or use security apps but I think this should be a choice in google play settings.
    Thanks

    It's there - go to settings, scroll down, and under "User controls", you should see two options - one to set/change a pin, and one to enable using a pin for purchases.

    Does anyone know if this will also require the pin to be entered for in-app purchases?
