How to get an App Store refund for kids' accidental in-app purchases

How to get an App Store refund for kids' accidental in-app purchases | Parenting ain't easy! | Scoop.it

In-app purchases have become a thorny issue for customers in Apple’s ecosystem. Earlier this year, Cupertino settled with the US Federal Trade Commission over incidents where minors made in-app purchases – in some cases exorbitant ones – without the knowledge of their parents.

 

But if you (or someone you know) has been bitten by one of these inadvertent purchases, how can you go about recouping your money? If visions of paperwork and annoying forms are swimming before your eyes, don’t sweat it: Apple’s made it pretty easy to put in your request without even leaving your computer.

Very important parents! If you left by accident that password or account open without realizing that your kids can and do buy things within apps. Whether knowing or even without realizing it is Real money!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 8, 6:39 PM

The first one is pretty important as all children do not turn into bullies. It makes sense that not all kids who use the Internet will turn into bullies. My guess is it would probably be about the same statistical occurrence as pre-Internet, but the footprints are saved.

 

Bullying is a complex and lived experience that is often a product of being bullied and having seen bullying go unchecked. Teachers and other adults who are good role models digitally and in person greatly help the cause of helping children.

Kate JohnsonMcGregor's curator insight, June 9, 9:06 AM

I have to agree with Gwyneth Jones in that, "there is no safety, only awareness" when teaching kids digital literacy. These are some great myths that need to be understood so that we can better equip our kids to navigate both the real and virtual world effectively.  

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, June 9, 2:00 PM

Good information to also share with parents, especially about their child's digital footprint and how to keep it private.
