    What we're going to do in this video, is show you how to prevent mischievous people, both children and big people alike, from making purchases from your Microsoft App Store without your permission
    .
    To do this, we're going to put a PIN, which is a personal identification number, to lock the App Store. Then someone will have to enter a PIN in order to access it. If you give them the PIN, at least you have the choice and you can give the PIN to people you trust.
