Updated Google Play Store to have passwords for more control over `in-game purchases`
Washington: Google has reportedly updated its Play Store, offering more control over purchase of in-game virtual goods.
Following the update, users will now have to enter a password every time they want to buy virtual goods while they are occupied with a game.
According to a website, earlier, goods could be bought within 30 minutes on one password entry, the option for which remains available.
The move comes after a woman from New York sued Google for the 30-minute window, after she discovered that her 5 year old daughter had used up to nearly 70 dollars from her account, purchasing virtual crystals while playing Marvel Run Jump Smash.
The woman had alleged in the lawsuit that the company hadn`t made it clear to parents about its in-game purchase policy.
