Kids love playing our games! We strive to create fun and engaging games that people of all ages can enjoy, and we’re totally jazzed that so many young kids gravitate towards our titles. Thank you parents for allowing your children to enjoy our games!
Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for young children to accidentally make in-app purchases in our games while playing if your devices are not protected. For this reason, we strongly encourage parents to apply password protection to all of their devices to prevent this from happening.
Below you will find instructions on how to set a password on your device to prevent all unauthorized purchases from app stores. We hope that with these instructions you can make your devices safer for your children when playing not only Rovio titles, but all games.
- Open the Google Play Store app, and navigate to the main menu. The main menu can be found by clicking the button on the top left of the screen.
- Click ‘Settings’.
- Under ‘User Controls’ section, you’ll find a subsection ‘Require authentication for purchases’. Click that.
- Check ‘For all purchases through Google Play on this device’.
After this, the device will ask authentication every time the user tries to make an in-app purchase.
