Google to tighten guidelines on unwanted in-app purchases

Google has agreed to add protections around games’ in-app purchases to protect parent’s credit cards from children unwittingly spending their money. The changes come at the request of the European Commission, which has been investigating the ongoing issue of unwanted in-app purchases and has laid out a series of guidelines that it would like developers and app stores to follow.
