Change purchase sign-in settings for Microsoft Store on Windows 10

Microsoft Store on Windows 10 asks for your password every time you buy something. To simplify purchasing and skip the password step: 

  1. Open Microsoft Store and select See more () next to the search box.

  2. Go to Settings > Purchase sign-in.

  3. Turn the switch to On.

    • This will let you buy from Microsoft Store without entering a password.

    • Your other devices will not be affected until you change the setting on each one.

    • This setting applies to in-app purchases.
