  1. Is it possible to change/remove the password without remembering it??
    (I forgot my password, but I want to remove it...)

    1. Hi Buddy,
      Thanks for coming.
      Well, I'm so sorry to say that I don't know how to remove password without entering the password. But, because the password is your Google password, you can try to retrieve/change your Google password by logging in to your Gmail from PC then follow the on-screen instructions to retrieve/change the password. Once you managed to retrieve/change the password. Once you know the password, you can use it to remove the password protection on your Play Store app.

    2. I don't think it is the same password as the one for other Google services as I can't enter any letters (only 4 numbers)
      thanks for your reply though!

    3. Hi Buddy,
      Thanks for getting back here.
      I'm so sorry if I was wrong.
      I tried it in the Play Store version 4.6.17 in my GT-I9500 and when I set "Require password for purchases" to "Never", it asked me to enter my Google password in order to remove the password protection.
      Again, I'm so sorry if I can't help you much.

    4. I found my password!!! thanks though!!

    5. Hi Buddy,
      I'm happy to know that your password finally can be found. Also, make sure to write down your password, just in case if you forget your password again in the future :)
