How to restrict in-app purchases
Many games and apps offer users the chance to purchase add-ons or additional content through in-app purchases. These purchases are linked to the account that you are logged into through the app store, which is linked to a payment method, eg credit card. It is possible to place restrictions on these purchases within the settings of each app store.
