    It becomes so boring, it always asks my password when i install/upgrade apps. How can i stop this if possible.

    Have you tried checking the settings to your account?
    But i think you can't,because it's a part of their payment security.

    What version of iOS are you running? 6.0 removed the password requirement when upgrading apps but you still need to put in the password when downloading a new one.

    I am using 6.1.2. I remember sometimes it didnt ask the password all the time. May it was because it upgraded the ios.

    @tsmrg: I can sympathize with you. I remember reading that iOS 6.0+ was supposed to allow you to upgrade and install previously purchased apps without a password. Yet, sometimes, I have to enter my password when I'm merely upgrading apps already on my iPad. But - not all the time! It's very random (as far as I can tell) that I'm asked for a password. It's very odd - and very annoying.

    So, no, I don't have a solution for you. :) Just know that someone somewhere "on the 'Net" is experiencing the same annoyances... :)

    Go to Settings>General>Restrictions>Require password. You can set it to immediately or to 15 minutes.

    image-4172690562.jpg If it's set to immediately, it'll ask for the password every time when updating apps, even on iOS 6.1.2.

    Yeah, that'd normally be the answer - except my restrictions aren't on (and if they were, I have my password set for 15 minutes). So, it still is a bit of a puzzle...

    I'll live, but it IS annoying! :)

    Did you install apps with another Apple ID? On my iPad I did, and when I update certain apps it asks for a passoword. I have found no way around it. I have to put the other Id/password.

    Yes, security can be a bit of a pain. Would you rather everyone could load whatever they wish on your iPad and charge you for the pleasure? If that's good for you, please just send me your bank router code, checking account number, social security number and date of birth and I'll take care of everything for you. Trust me.
