There are countless free apps on the App Store that can fill your life with convenience, productivity, fun, and more. If you enjoy trying new apps, you can save time by knowing how to download free apps without entering your password on the iPhone or iPad. This makes it a breeze to get the apps you want instantly without the extra step of authentication. Let’s check out what’s involved.
How to Download Free Apps Without Password in iOS Device
- Open the Settings app and tap on your Profile name at the top.
- Tap on Media and Purchases.
- In the popup box, tap Password Settings.
- Toggle OFF Require Password under Free Downloads. Then tap Done.
Note: For apps that require a purchase, we recommend that you choose to Always Require Password. This will prevent accidental purchases of apps and will save you the trouble of losing your money or having to request a refund process.
This is how you can download free apps quickly and effortlessly on your iPhone or iPad without entering the password. However, in case you do not find this option on your device, it may not be available in your region. Let us know in the comments below if you have any questions.

The tab to remove password for free downloads is greyed out. I can’t enable or disable it. Still stuck. Tried managing cards, subscriptions, everything.
Are you using Touch ID on your device? If you have Touch ID enabled, none of the settings will show up at all, so first, go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and turn off Touch ID. Then go to Settings > Profile > Media, and Purchases > Password Settings again and toggle off the Require Password option under Free Downloads. Once done, you can go back to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and enable Touch ID. Hope this helps.
Thank for the above information.
However, nothing seems to work on my phone. It appears to be permanently stuck in the Verification Required loop. I tried all of the above but to no avail. I even tried adding a credit card, but this didn’t help. I deleted the card, and this didn’t help either. The quest continues!
Sorry to hear that. We have a separate article about the Verification Required error. Please check out https://www.igeeksblog.com/how-to-stop-verification-required-when-installing-free-apps/
Hope that helps, good luck!
“verification required” still shows up 🙁

Hi! I can’t remember my Apple ID password so I can not download apps. I tried to do as u said but when I click on password and security, in settings, the box pops up wanting me to enter my Apple ID password. So I can’t even get in there to change the setting. What else can I do?
If you’ve forgotten your Apple ID password, it’s essential to reset it. Please go to iForgot.Apple.com and follow the on-screen instructions to set a new password.
I did it but it still doesn’t work
please elaborate what exactly is not working. Were you able to follow the steps or are they greyed out?
