    Went to purchase an app earlier and I noticed it asked me to sign back into my id and enter my password not just to purchase but to sign back in. I never singed out!? What's the deal ha

    I think it's a bug. I have to sign back in constantly

    Some sort of security measure. If it's happening, all in one day, I would contact Apple and/or check the settings.

    I do not believe that it is a bug, There are certain apps and I believe because of the nature of the app or maybe even the developer wants it that way. Does it really present a problem to sign back in for one app one in a while?

    I believe it depends on how king it's been since you bought something from the AppStore. You need to sign back in as a security measure to purchase something of it's been longer than x days.

    I agree. I buy pretty often & am never asked to sign in, I just use my fingerprint & keep it moving.

    Did you restart the device? If you restart your device, as a security function, the finger print scanner is deactivated until you sign back into your account...afterwards it should return to normal functionality.

    I've had every iPhone (since the 4) and I had times where I haven't downloaded apps for LONG periods of time and it never asked me to sign back in completely (ios 6). For certain apps I do have to *enter my password* for a security reason (since ios 6 and before) but that dialog just pops up even when you open the App Store/iTunes Store or even the settings app.

    Having to sign back into Apple ID-imageuploadedbytapatalk1388426162.814550.jpg
    Here's an example. Not even at an app or anything and it asks this multiple times. *bug*

    That's very odd! Like I said I haven't had this issue at all. If I were you, I'd do a restore through iTunes and if that doesn't work I'd head to the Genius Bar.

    I did the restore but I might try the Genius Bar when I have a little time on my hands (preparing for college). It's so weird.

    I only have to reenter my Apple ID when I reboot my device...I've never had the store ask for my password a second time.

    I have to enter a password every time, been like that as long as I can remember. The amount of times I'm downloading it's not that big of a deal for me.
