How Does Ask to Buy Work?
Here’s how Ask to Buy Works:
When your child tries to download content, the ASK Permission screen pops up on their device. You will then receive a request on your phone which you can approve or decline.
The Ask to Buy feature works best when Touch ID/Face ID is enabled on both the parent and child devices. Otherwise, you’ll end up doing way too much typing. We recommend setting this up now as it will also be easier to set up Screen Time for your child’s device
- Go to Settings, and tap Touch ID & Passcode (or Face ID) and follow the instructions
Many families appreciate this Ask to Buy feature especially when there’s a need to approve purchases remotely. We do also recommend that parents check the App Store age-level rating, and if you want further information, text us!
