Payment question on Blackberry World

Hi folks,

I'm new to this and have been looking up games and apps.

What makes me nervous is that I don't know how payments for apps work.   I don't want to be charged unless I know I'm being charged.

The setup seems to say that payments will be automatic.  Can I set it so that if I buy something it will ask for a password?

Some games say that they are free but have items for sale inside.  I certainly don't want my kid playing a game and racking up a huge phone bill.

So, is there any protection against this?

Re: Payment question on Blackberry World

Hello farsight954 and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for your question about BlackBerry World and purchases.


You can enable your BlackBerry ID password to be asked each time a purchase is to be made.


Launch BlackBerry World and swipe down from the Top then select Settings. Go to Payment Options and ensure "Always prompted for password before purchase" is set to On.


Hope this answers your question.
