Default how do i password protect my android market?

i am trying to password protect my phone so my toddler doesnt purchase anymore apps on my behalf. is there a way to password the market so nothing can be downloaded without the password like it is on the iphone?

Hi,

You know you have 24 hours to uninstall and get a full refund?

Admittedly you would have to check after getting your phone back but the notifications should still be there (unless your toddler clears them I suppose)

Seems like a bit of a leap based on trying out just one app. I don't have suggestions off the top of my head (I lock the entire device) but I know I've seen discussions along these lines before.

I use "App Protector" which password protects anything i wan't.
Especially the Market, and install/uninstall via any method.
works fine.
What does an Iphone do that is much better/necessary?

I just purchased App Protector and love it. So much so I may lock important apps and the dialer and disable that friggin' system PIN lock that causes me so many headaches!
