    Hey guys I was wondering if there is a way to disable the password for when i make updates to apps?? But i don't want to disable them all. I just want to be able to update an app witout having to write my password. I want to use the pass only for buying and downloading them. Is there a way? Ty and have a nice day ^_^

    There is not way to disable the password prompt for apps. It's a security measure. Still, if you are using iOS 6.x.x, the only time you should be asked to enter a password is when you're purchasing an app or downloading an app you've never downloaded before. You should not be prompted for your password when merely "updating" the apps you currently have.

    If setting for "require password" under settings -> general -> restrictions is set to always then yes you need to enter your password every time you purchase or update apps. If it's set to 15 minutes then you only need to enter your password 15 minutes after your last purchase but you don't need to enter the password for app updates

    The OP asked if there was a way to "disable" entering passwords for apps and there is no way to do so. Yes, you can postpone entering it for 15 minutes at a time, but you are still prompted for your password on your initial app purchase.

    So what you guys r saying is that, if i set it to 15 minutes, will it require password as a buy an app or in game stuff? Will they take money from me if i do so? Cause i would like to have a pass for when i get an app and for when i purchase in game stuff. So if i set it to 15 minutes what does tht exactly mean in what concerns the bill? And ty both for helping.

    The OP was asking if there was a way to disable entering passwords for app updates while having to enter passwords for app purchases and I was listing the options available. I could of read it wrong though

    You will have to pay any time you buy an app, regardless of the timing.

    Let's say you have it set for 15 minutes. That means that when you initially purchase an app, you will be prompted to enter your password, however, if you purchase any other apps within that timeframe, you should not be asked for your password.
    Will they take money from me if i do so?
    If you purchase an app, money will be taken from your account.
    Cause i would like to have a pass for when i get an app and for when i purchase in game stuff.
    I don't understand what you mean by "pass". Did you mean to type "password"?

    Okay, so you're saying: "Cause i would like to have a pass for when i get an app and for when i purchase in game stuff." Well, as acerace113 have already stated, simply go to Settings->General->Restrictions and then scroll down to "Require Password". Tap on it and then tap on "Immediately". Doing this will require that you enter a password for EVERY app purchased, but not for updating already purchased apps.

    OP what iOS version are you using? what phone? because since iOS 6 there is no prompt for passwords when updating apps. Which sounds like what you're asking.
