How do I restrict in-app purchase on my Windows Phone?

If you have a Windows Phone, you can activate a Wallet PIN to protect your phone from unauthorized purchases in the Windows Phone Store. Your Wallet PIN is different to your lock screen password, so when you set up a Wallet PIN, be sure to choose something you'll remember – particularly if you don't think you'll use it very often. If you forget your Wallet PIN, you'll need to reset your phone to its factory settings.

To create your Wallet Pin, please complete the following steps:

  • In the App list, tap the Wallet icon
  • Tap the More icon
  • Then tap Settings+PIN
  • Turn on the Wallet PIN toggle switch
  • Then enter and confirm your new PIN (it must be at least four digits long)
  • Tap 'Done' to confirm
  • If you'd like to require this PIN for purchases in the Windows Phone Store, select the 'Use Wallet PIN to protect music, app and in-app purchases' checkbox
