    Your password is used to log into Google Play. If you are using someone elses PC make sure you log out of Google Play when you are done.

    Apparently you've instructed the browser to remember the password. That encrypted information won't be available to anyone else unless they're using the same browser on the same computer as the same user that you are logged-in as.

    Edit the security preferences to remove that information from the browser, if you like.

    Is it just me, or might the OP be referring a handset of costs as his/her computer? In the off chance that's the case....

    OP, how are you accessing Google Play? If it's from a phone or tablet, something
    like app lock or a password on your lock screen might help.
