    Hi everybody

    When you open the AppStore and try to buy an app, the AppStore asks for your password to confirm the purchase.
    The thing is, if you buy a second app, your password is already there so the AppStore is not asking for it again.
    I want to be asked again!, how do I achieve this?
    The problem is I have 2 kids, and I don't want them to buy anything from inside the games.
    I tried to close the AppStore from the opened apps (long press, wait for the minus signs) , but that doesn't seems to work...

    Unfortunately, when you first enter the password, the App Store "remembers" you for about 15 minutes afterwards. As far as I know, there is no way to stop it. So, all I can suggest is to not give the iPad to someone until 15 minutes have passed [since your last download].

    The good news is that this 15 minutes does not apply for in-app purchases, as you will always get asked if you want to make a purchase from within the app.

    I guess Apple figured more people wanted the convenience of easy downloading versus waiting 15 minutes.

    You could go to Settings > General > Restrictions and turn off both the Installing Apps and In-App Purchases optins. Leave it this way, and only enable it when you are buying stuff.

    There is also Require Password option that can be changed to immediately. I think it only applies to In-App Purchases, but you could experiment with it and see if it affects the App Store directly.

    Don't forget the passcode though. It's a bear to recover.
