Latest update of Google Play Store App now require password entry
Google may finally be offering protection of sorts from added charges due to the accidental download of paid apps, with a “require password” option for its updated Google Play app.
A new version of the Google Play Store is rolling out to a wide number of people this week, bringing with it a few new options in the settings and some visual tweaks that make the whole app run a bit smoother.
Rather than an on/off option for requiring a password for purchases, you now have three — all purchases, every 30 minutes, or never.
Also in the settings is new wording that changes “auto add widgets” to “add icon to home screen,” which makes dramatically more sense considering that the Play Store was never actually putting widgets on your home screen, just apps.
he improved Play Store also makes it easier to reach the settings and help menus; the “Auto-Add Widget” function has been renamed to “Add Icon to Home Screen”; and it is possible to update the Play Store app itself.
The newest version of the Google Play Store is 4.5.10. Google is pushing the improved software out to devices now.
