Re: Upgrade Password

You can manage In-App purchases for Amazon Apps very easily, it's a configuration issue.

It is easy to disable In-App purchases entirely.

It is equally easy to leave them enabled but to require a PIN to be entered.

The Amazon App Store clearly lists that an App features "In-App" purchasing, and while Amazon could do more to publicise it's useful controls on this, it's much better than others.
