Does anyone know how to do this? DS1 got a galaxy tab yesterday and I've set up a pin so that he can't buy apps without me knowing, but I can't see how to disable in-app purchases. If anyone could help that would be great smile

Once you've set up the PIN, under the user controls in the app store settings, you should see an option "Use PIN for purchases"

Hi niceguy I've done that but don't think that disables in app purchases, I'm just comparing it to my ipad which has a password when buying apps on the app store as well as a slider to turn off in app purchases - unless I just want a nice sliding button to reassure me like it has on my ipad grin

Have you tried it? That's how it should work.

I found same instructions here: How to disable in app purchases
