The Google Play Store is the official app store for Android mobile devices. It has thousands of apps and content where it is easy to incur expenses. Fortunately, it is also possible to set a monthly budget and avoid large expenses.

Especially for those who have children, or whose device belongs to someone of a young age, it is very easy to spend money on purchases in games. With this in mind, we have compiled this tip, an easy and effective way to control purchases in the Play Store.
