What are in-app purchases?

Within an app or game (even free ones) users are charged for certain items or for access to improved versions for example. So, if you have allowed a child to download an app, or a game, he or she may be asked to buy items or features to be able to use that app fully. If you have left your credit card details there and open, you may be paying for unexpected charges. Always check the settings are set to prevent this and that you are always asked first before a purchase is made.
