    Really needed your help!

    my kids keep downloading those online game on my phone, they even use my credit card to pay for it.

    I did not wanna scream at them and make them feel bad about it.

    my friend told me to download those lock apps to prevent all this, but I have never used an app like this before.there are lots of choices.there is one called APPLOCK with tons of good comments. but I heard that some company paid for all these good comments just to make you download and it's actually not good at all. is there anyone used APPLOCK or anything like it before?can you recommend me something reliable?

    You can enable authentication on every purchase so your kids would need to enter your Google password every time they try to buy something. If they don't know your password, they won't be able to buy things. This is built into your phone.
