[Tutorial] How To Block Installation Of Paid Apps On Your Android Using PIN Code

The touch pads are so intuitive that our children are quite comfortable with. Compared to a computer, everything is simplified, especially the installation of a new application. Installing new apps and games on Android is so easy that when the child understands how to install them, they can spend their time downloading new ones just to try them out. This is not a problem if those applications are free, but it can quickly become very expensive if your child finds a page with paid applications. In addition, many games that are initially free offers to purchase points or options with real money. So be very careful if you leave your tablet to your child.
