How can I set purchase approvals for the family payment method for members over the age of 18? 0 Recommended Answers 4 Replies 15 Upvotes

I need to make it so that no one on my google play family can use the family payment method without my approval. I am the youngest member of the google play family (21) but I'm the one that pays for it, manages it, and created it. It's a but irritating that because a member is over 18 they have free reign over my credit card and can accidentally purchase something with the family payment method, which is what occurred today. I need to know if there is any possible way to remove access to the family payment method or at least put it behind an authentication, because as of right now there is no authentication needed to purchase a movie for example. The only thing I can put behind an authentication is in-app purchases. Any help is appreciated, but as of right now it appears that there is nothing I can do.

Hi Nathan, here are instructions for managing Purchase Approval settings for your Family Group:
 
You do need to be the family manager.

I'd also like an answer to this question, please.
The purchase authorization process should be tightened up to protect the card holder(s) & require authorization for ALL purchases not just some.

I'm guessing that if the card used for purchases falls under a joint account there would be legal problems in blocking over 18s from using it, as they actually otherwise might be authorized to do so.
However, I'm sure there could be methods to overcome this issue. For instance by allowing PayPal as a family payment method?

If you would like the Family Payment Method to work differently, do send feedback to Google from inside the Google Play app.
