How to Password-Protect Your NOOK Tablet

It might be a good idea to add password protection to your NOOK Tablet Shop to make sure that other people use their accounts — not yours — to purchase from B&N, particularly if others will have access to your NOOK Tablet. Password-protection can also protect your account should your NOOK Tablet ever be stolen.

How to require a password to make purchases

To configure your NOOK Tablet to require a password for purchases:

  1. Press the ∩ button to display the quick nav bar.

  2. Tap the Settings button.

  3. On the Settings screen, tap Shop.

    It’s in the App Settings section.

  4. Tap the check box next to Require Password for Purchases.

    If the check box is bold, rather than grayed out, the option is already turned on; you don’t need to tap it.

  5. In the dialog box that appears, type your B&N account password.

  6. Tap OK.

How to remove the password

If your tablet asks for a password when someone tries to buy something, but you want to remove that requirement, here’s how to unring that bell. Follow Steps 1 through 4 from the process for “Requiring a password to make purchases.” Then continue as follows:

  1. Press the ∩ button to display the quick nav bar.

  2. Tap the Settings button.

  3. On the Settings screen, tap Shop.

    It’s in the App Settings section.

  4. In the dialog box that appears, type the password.

  5. Tap the check box next to Require Password for Purchases.

  6. Tap OK.
