    Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to stop Google Store being opened from adverts etc in apps and games.

    My little one plays games and often ends up in the store without really knowing what he is doing. I have set it so I have a password required to purchase, but still would rather he wasn't there. He has already managed to uninstall something!

    Probably not, that would defeat the purpose of the advertising.

    One option is to block the ads for the apps that don't offer a paid ad free version.

    If it's a game that doesn't actually require a network connection except for the ads, turning the network off will usually let it run without this problem.

    Thanks - I will look at the wifi off mode.

    How do you block adds?
