    Until recently, anytime I clicked on 'buy' on the itunes store, I had to sign in with my Apple ID and password. However, recently when you click on 'buy' it immediately starts to download the item without asking you to sign in.

    Is there any way to stop this? I'd much rather be prompted to sign in each time I buy something. The touch sensitive trackpad on the mac doesn't help, as it has resulted in me downloading things I didn't want as I scrolled up and down the screen.

    I used this: rather obscure method of discovering hidden information

    To find this: 1-Click Ordering

    Trolls are the worst

    Asking questions on message boards become part of Google's database, so if people simply searched on Google, and never asked - there'd be nothing to find on Google. Hope that didn't go over your head.

    If you don't have an answer to the question - how about not answering? Especially when your sarcastic response is wrong - the link you sent the person asking to is about one-click settings on the Apple Store - not iTunes. So not only were you wrong, you made yourself look dumb.

    I've been researching this - and it looks like there is no easy way to do this. I'm hoping to find a terminal hack that turns it off - if I find it, I'll post it here.

    I found the easiest way is to log out of the iTunes Store and then when you make a purchase you just log back in without saving the password. So long as you don't click the box to remain logged in or keep your password it should work fine.
