Apple makes it easy to download an app or rent a movie on your iPhone or iPad. But what if you want to change the default password behavior for the App Store and iTunes Store? Follow the steps below to manage your password preferences.
Disabling Touch ID and Face ID for App Store and iTunes Store
If you use a modern iPhone with Touch ID or Face ID, you will not be prompted to set your password preference in the App Store app. Touch ID and Face ID take precedence over your previous preferences (if present).
So if you do not want to be asked for authentication for buying apps, you will still receive a Touch ID or Face ID prompt. The only way to access those password management settings is to first disable Touch ID or Face ID authentication for the App Store and iTunes Store.
To do this, open the "Settings" app and go to the "Face ID & access code" or "Touch ID & access code" section depending on your device.
Enter the access code of your lockscreen in the next screen to verify.
Tap the switch next to "iTunes & App Store" to disable Face ID or Touch ID authentication for App Store and iTunes Store.
Once you do this, Face ID and Touch ID are disabled for the App Store and iTunes Store. You must enter the password every time you purchase and download apps. More information about configuring these settings can be found in the section below.
Manage password preferences for App Store and iTunes Store
Once Face ID or Touch ID authentication is disabled, a whole new password preference section is unlocked. To do this, go to the top of the Settings app and tap your name.
Select the "iTunes & App Store" option here.
Tap the newly unlocked item & # 39; Password settings & # 39 ;.
U See now two sections. In the & # 39; Purchases and In-App Purchases & # 39; you can switch to the option & # 39; After 15 minutes require & # 39; to prevent the App Store from asking you for your password or verification every time you purchase an app or an in-app purchase (up to 15 minutes)
 In the & # 39; Free downloads & # 39; you will find the function & # 39; Password required & # 39 ;. You can disable it If you do not want to be asked for a password every time you download a free item.
