Learn about AT&T Purchase Blocker

Avoid unwanted or unexpected charges on your bill. Use AT&T Purchase Blocker to keep people on your account from buying apps, games, ringtones, and other mobile purchases that are billed directly to your wireless account.

Using Purchase Blocker

Be sure to add Purchase Blocker to each device you want to prevent from making mobile purchases. Keep in mind that Purchase Blocker:
  • Cancels existing mobile subscriptions that bill directly to your wireless account (apps, games, or alert services).
  • Blocks one-time purchases like charitable donations that are billed directly to your AT&T account.
  • Doesn’t block credit card purchases made through smartphone app stores. It only blocks purchases that are billed directly to your wireless account.
