About In-App Purchases

When you insert your password your iPhone stores it for 15 minutes. So if you download an app and then allow someone else to use it they will be free to make purchases for the next 15 minutes until it is requested again.

Disabling In-App Purchases

To prevent this happening in the future you can actually disable in-app purchases in the settings on your iPhone. The process is extremely simple. You just go to:

Settings >> General >> Restrictions >> Enter PIN >> Enable Restrictions >> In-App Purchases Off.
