Microsoft Store and billing help

You can set Microsoft Store to require a password when you make purchases. This helps prevent you (or anyone sharing your device) from buying something accidentally. You can also use your Xbox One console to require a password for purchases.

To require a password for purchases, using a PC or mobile device that has Windows 10:

  1. Under Purchase sign-in, turn off I want to buy without a password, for faster checkout.

  2. Repeat these steps for each device you share.

Open Microsoft Store
