Google has added a new option to the Play Store that will give users more control over in-app purchases. The move, which comes after a lawsuit over pricey purchases made by a child, purports to give Android users the possibility to curb excessive in-app spending.

The new version of the Play Store includes a setting whereby users can require a password to be entered every time a purchase is made within an app. The company said earlier this year that it is "working on new features that give our customers even more information and control over their Google Play purchases," particularly following the fallout of a similar class-action lawsuit that demanded Apple pay $32.5 million to thousands of customers.
