securitybreach Posted July 19, 2014 Share Posted July 19, 2014 About time!! Maybe they will adapt the policy in the US as well: Google has agreed to add protections around games' in-app purchases to ensure that children won't rack up unwanted charges on their parents' credit cards. The changes come at the request of the European Commission, which has been investigating the ongoing issue of unwanted in-app purchases and is today laying out a series of guidelines that it would like developers and app stores to comply with. Google has said that by the end of September, it will cease to advertise games as "free" when they include in-app purchases and that it will also require payment verification before each purchase. It's unclear if these changes will be exclusive to Europe, however..... http://mobile.thever...pean-commission Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
