    Hi there and welcome.

    So just to clarify, you can download apps without the password or, you can't download apps because it isn't asking for a password?

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, etc. and iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the forum rules http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers) http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2892-hacking-section-rules-please-read.html

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You can download the manual for your iPad here http://help.apple.com/ipad/6/ and here http://support.apple.com/manuals/ and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for iOS 4, 5, 6, etc.

    If you have other Apple products or are interested in other Apple kit then why not join our sister forum too at http://www.appleforums.net/ and for iPhone users, come and join in the discussion over at http://www.iphoneforums.net

    Ah, I've come across this with free apps before but not both. Have you tried backing up your iPad with your computer and restoring?

    Just thought I'd ask this.

    Did one of you happen to buy an app either free or paid and input the password, then another has downloaded another app within the 15 minute period in which they don't ask for the Password again?

    This is set as default on the iPad.....can also be changed to immediately, so it will ask for the password for every app download.

    Settings - General - Restrictions - Require Password. It will entail setting a 4 digit Passcode. Please remember this Passcode for future changes to these settings.

    Another thing which could be happening too, depending on how you have all these iPads set up. If you buy an app on one iPad it may automatically download this same app to all your iPads.

    Just thought I'd throw this info in.

    I was just about to post the above suggestion.... Just go thru all devices and check settings and ensure it asks immediately. For some reason mine sakes me twice a every time, at first I thought maybe I would get charged twice but I didn't ... Have no idea how to fix my problem lol
