How can I turn off the automatic "1 click" payment so that my child can't make unauthorized purchases?

You can't. But you can deregister the device. However, that means that if you have a Fire, there will be a ton of stuff that won't work (streaming from Amazon, for example).

Until your child is old enough/mature enough to know not to buy things without permission on someone else's tab, you probably should only allow him/her to use it under your supervision.

If you're worried simply about accidental purchases, you will get an email any time there is a purchase, and you can return items. Don't think you can do that with "on demand" type content, though.

wow what a surprise... Is there any way to require a password for purchases?

You don't have to. You only have to teach your child to be responsible, honest and obedient. It seems to be a chore for some parents to teach their kids right from wrong.

"You don't have to. You only have to teach your child to be responsible, honest and obedient. It seems to be a chore for some parents to teach their kids right from wrong."

Well I'm not going to disagree that kids need to learn about responsibility. But that has nothing to do with the fact that 1) people make mistakes, 2) it's pretty easy to buy something without realizing it and 3) some folks are concerned not about irresponsible kids, but what about their responsible kids friends who are devious and know EXACTLY what they are doing when they make that click...

So Fud53, there's more to this issue than teaching kids responsibility.

There is a password set up available for buying or renting movies. I think that they should extend it for all content. Even for free content would be good.

Go to parental controls, turn them on, then choose the "PIN" option. Only you know the PIN, so your child won't be able to purchase items without your knowledge.

Lori,

I thought that I had read that there were no parental control on Kindle's. How do I access that on the Kindle Fire?

This function doesn't currently work. Setting the control and adding a pin doesn't prevent someone from purchasing.
