Hp 7 1800

I am wondering if there is a way to put a password required before loading apps to this device. It will be a present for 8 yr old and I don't want her to be able to just do anything. Thanks

Hi and welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

There is indeed a setting in the Play Store to use a password to restrict purchases. :smileyhappy:

From my experience of using smartphones you should ALWAYS have to enter a password before buying.
