This article explains how to change Purchase sign-in settings, including turning it On or Off for Microsoft Store on Windows 11.

The Microsoft Store app is installed on Windows by default. The app is now one of the most used apps on PCs and helps you discover and install apps, games, movies, and even special offers – like unique movie discounts for Xbox Game Pass members.

The app will default ask for your password whenever you buy something. This security feature prevents unauthorized or mistaken purchases.

If you want to make app purchases without password prompts, you can skip the password requirements to buy from Microsoft Store.

The Purchase sign-in setting in the Microsoft Store app lets you turn on or off password requirements for purchases. Howerver, the settings will only be turned on for the device you are logged onto.

Your other devices won’t have this setting turned on.
