Your password is the key to making purchases on the iPhone and iPad, but your password is also required for free app downloads. While the default password requirement mandates that you enter your password with each download, you can set your password to mandate a password requirement every 15 minutes instead of with each app download. To learn how to change your password requirement on iPhone and iPad, follow the steps below:
• To learn how to change your password requirement on iPhone and iPad, you must first visit your device settings. Scroll down on the left side until you see a section titled “iTunes & App Store,” then look over to the panel on the right.
• You should see your Apple ID at the top of the right portion of the screen. Look beneath it, and you should see your password settings. Select the arrow to the right of it.
• You will come up on a section titled “Purchases & In-App Purchases,” and the options to 1) always require and 2) Require After 15 Minutes.” Select “Require After 15 Minutes.”
Now, after you’ve learned how to change your password requirement on iPhone and iPad, you can revisit it at any time if, for some reason, your relatives, friends, or a combination of both choose to download apps against your knowledge on your device (or a shared device).
