Goole Play新功能:购买物品前需要输入密码

Goole Play新功能:购买物品前需要输入密码0

元器件交易网讯  3月17日消息,据外媒报道,近日谷歌对其app store进行升级,要求用户在app程序内购买物品时需要输入密码,此举有效控制用户在应用内的购买行为。

此前,谷歌默认用户在app store只要输入密码后30分钟内再购买东西,不需再次输入密码。这给那些家长带来了很大困扰。几天前,谷歌被一名家长起诉,她的孩子在游戏内购买了65美元的虚拟物品。

在苹果的案例中,应用程序内消费同样缺乏控制。消费者和联邦法院对苹果商店保持15分钟内不需要输入密码进行投诉。最终苹果支付给37000名用户大概3250万美元,并且修改了如何通知消费者的功能。

据Android社区报道,谷歌还增加了当用户安装应用程序和游戏时,在个人应用程序页面会显示出此应用是否具有应用内购买权。谷歌没有立即对作出答复。(元器件交易网   白玉涛译)

以下为外文:

Following a recent lawsuit, and inquiry by the European Commission about protections for in-app purchases, Google's begun offering new controls for shoppers on its Play Store to restrict how those transactions are made. A new version of the Play Store adds the option to require a password each and every time in-app purchases are made, something that provides a considerably higher amount of protection than the 30-minute window Google gives users by default. That half hour setting — which continues to be an option — means that extra purchases can be made without a password, just as long as they're within that window.

CHANGE COMES DAYS AFTER A FRESH LAWSUIT

The change, which was spotted by Android Police, comes just days after Google was sued over the 30-minute window by a New York woman. That suit seeks class action, and stems from a $65.95 purchase of in-game currency the woman's child made in the game Marvel Run Jump Smash! It's also less than two weeks where Google, along with Apple, met with the European Commission to discuss reforms to so-called freemium games and apps, including how in-app payments are made. Google, for its part, telegraphed that it was working on a fix in January, saying it was "working on new features that give our customers even more information and control over their Google Play purchases."

In Apple's case, the stakes over what were viewed as lax parental controls in the App Store were high. Consumers, and later the Federal Trade Commission filed complaints against the company for its 15-minute window, eventually resulting in a settlement in January that required Apple to pay out $32.5 million to 37,000 different customers, and change how it informed consumers about the feature.

Along with the change, Android Community reports that Google's added an indicator to whether apps and games have in-app purchases right when a user gives it permission to install, on top of the mention on individual app pages. Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
