As mentioned in another thread, I have been the victim of in-app purchases fraud. I think I have the problem solved - we'll see when my Visa bill comes next month with (hopefully) a credit on it to make up for the money I was conned out of this month.
Anyway - Apple sent me an email which supposedly gives instructions on how to restrict/elminate in app purchases on the iPad. According to Apple, you go into Settings/General/Restrictions. In Restrictions, there is a section under "Allowed Content" for "In-app Purchases." That setting is OFF by default. I would assume that, since I had been defrauded by an in-app purchase scam with that setting in the OFF position, the solution to the problem would be to turn it ON, which I have done. (The instructions from Apple only got me in there. They did not tell me what to do once I got there.)
Can I now assume that my iPad will no longer be able to make any type of in-app purchase?
