Is there a way to shorten or eliminate the time the the iTunes/App store holds your password permission active.

My 3 year old just bought an app without needing a password and I'd like to eliminate the possibility of her doing that again.

You can follow these steps to set your device to require your password for every purchase:


1) Tap Settings on your device's home screen.


2) Tap General.


3) Tap Restrictions.


4) If necessary, tap "Enable Restrictions" and enter a passcode. This passcode will prevent restrictions from being disabled without your permission.


5) Scroll down to the Allowed Content section and find "Require Password 15 minutes". Change the "Require Password" option to "Immediately".


6) Tap the Restrictions button at the top and confirm your selection reads "Require Password Immediately".
