Free Fire is Garena’s popular title based on a Battle Royale-type gameplay; it is a video game in which the last survivor winns the game. Free Fire has gained special attention on social media and the Internet, mainly because the most popular YouTube and Twitch streamers have taken the game to bring a new type of content to the fans.
This is a game that falls into the free-to-play category, which implies that players can take control of the basic dynamics to enjoy Free Fire. However, the game includes the possibility to carry out internal transactions to acquire some special features such as skins, weapons, outfits or participate in so-called Boxes to get other items.
Each of these elements, which are usually incorporated in new events, are usually part of collaborations or crossovers allusive to them. In that sense, the items can cost quite a few diamonds (the current currency of the game).
The purchase of diamonds is usually done through the direct in-game transaction, which takes care of the data of a credit or debit card, linked to the Android or iOS account, depending on the platform on which Free Fire is being played. But in some of the cases, these transactions have been made without the card owners knowing about them, or these are accidental transactions when purchasing something that was not wanted to be purchased.
Below we will tell you how to block unwanted purchases in Free Fire; so that you have control of all the transactions made in the game that you do want, as well as to prevent purchases from being made in the Garena app, regardless of the platform on which the game is being played.
How to block unwanted purchases in Free Fire (iOS)
- You’ll need to access your device, open Settings, select General, and then click Restrictions.
- Next, you’ll need to select the option to enable constraints and put a code to control this section.
- Then make sure you choose a code that’s different from the one you use to unlock this device, so no one else knows it.
- Deactivate the option to allow in-app purchases in Free Fire and in any other app you want.
- It’s worth mentioning that if your child is older than 13 and currently uses the Family Plan, you can turn on the Request purchase option.
How to block unwanted purchases in Free Fire (Android)
- You’ll need to sign in to Google Play as a first step to turn off in-app purchases.
- Click the menu icon at the top right of the home page.
- Click on the Settings tab.
- Scroll into the list until you reach User Controls. There will appear the Password option to restrict purchases. If it is unchecked, select it to activate it.
- Next, you’ll need to enter your Google password.
- You can filter the contents according to maturity levels. To activate it, it will prompt you for a four-digit password.
Once set up, you can test with a purchase; open an application and you will see how this option is blocked (by requiring the entry of the password). With this you can be sure that no purchase can be made within the application.
