Stop Alexa from Ordering Items without your Permission on iPhone [How-to]

How do you prevent Alexa from ordering items without your mission using your iPhone or iPad? Here is the quick guide to let you have the desired control over it.

Apart from answering some of your most weird questions instantly or entertaining you with funny replies, Alexa lets you order items on Amazon. Simply activate Alexa on your Amazon Echo or Dot, ask it to order any stuff, just say “Yes” to confirm and you are done!

The process of ordering any stuff using Alexa is so simple that even a little child can play around with it. What if you want to prevent the virtual assistant from placing any order without your permission or wish to make it a bit difficult for others to make a purchase? Turns out, you can have a perfect control over the digital assistant.

How to Add a Passcode to Purchases via Alexa on iPhone and iPad

To me, the best way to prevent Alexa from ordering items is to add a passcode to purchases. When confirming that you wish to buy any stuff, the virtual assistant will ask you to tell your voice code without which you won’t be able to purchase anything.

Step #1. Launch Alexa app on your iOS device.

Step #2. Next, tap on the menu button at the top left the corner.
