    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.

    To enter the menu, we're going to press the button located at the bottom of the right-hand side of the screen, which is the ellipses or 3 dots
    .

    This is the menu

    Once we press that it will show us some options.

  11. 11
    Press settings, located at the bottom
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Now we have been taken to the settings menu
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    We want to press this button, which is this button that says "PIN"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Now it has taken us to the Wallet
    .
    The Wallet on a Microsoft Lumia 535 just helps you to control your purchasing power for things such as apps, music and other things. It helps to protect the things that involve money.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    We want to turn Wallet PIN on because we need to create a PIN
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Now we have the option to create a PIN
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    We are going to keep things simple for this video, but you'll probably want to make it more complicated than 1-2-3-4
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    We actually need to confirm it as well
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Now it's done, so we press "done"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Now you see that the PIN has been activated
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    We need to select the square at the top that says "Use wallet PIN to protect music, app, and in-app purchase"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    We have created a PIN, we've applied it and it's now ready to defend our system, which is our music and application purchases system
    .
    If we go out of this and we try to get back into the store, we should see if it requires a PIN or not. Press "Store".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    If we try to buy something, you will see it now requires a PIN
    .
    So you will see that it is doing its job. Even if it is you, you will see it gives you a security barrier between purchasing it or not. It gives you a chance to think.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    We can move back from this screen now
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
