7 -  Parental controls on iOS, Android, and Windows devices

Sometimes an in-app purchase may have been made accidentally. To protect both yourself and your children from accidental purchases made in the iTunes, Google Play, and Windows phone stores, we suggest setting up certain security countermeasures to add a few steps between you and completing a purchase.

Please note that these steps will need to be performed for EACH mobile device you would like to restrict purchasing from.
To restrict in-app purchases for iOS devices:
You can use restrictions to prevent purchasing on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Scroll to the bottom to find the section on managing your child’s account (if they have an account via the Apple ID for Students program) and setting up allowances with “Ask to Buy.”
To restrict in-app purchasing for Android devices:
To prevent and restrict purchases with Google Play for Android, you can set your device to require a password for any purchases.

8 - Troubleshooting connection issues with multiple devices on the same network

Sometimes when you have multiple devices--such as consoles, computers, tablets, and phones--all simultaneously on the same network, especially when trying to connect to a single game server, there's a chance that one or more players will be disconnected from the server.

This is likely due to your NAT settings preventing the server's signal  from reaching all the devices on the network. 

This can usually be solved by activating UPnP on your router, as well as making sure that all devices on the network both have UPnP support, and that it is set to active.

To ensure that your connections will be stable:
  • Log into your router and enableUPnP on the router.
    • If your router does not support UPnP, you likely need to contact your router provider for information on updating your firmware for UPnP compatibility.
  • Enable UPnP on any devices that are on your network and direct signals, instructions on which can likely be found through your device's manufacturer or help system, as well as in Windows
    • Note, consoles should accept UPnP automatically
  • Once UPnP has been enabled on your devices and computers, restart all of your device, consoles, and products.
Once you've ensure UPnP is activated on your devices, multiple consoles and/or PCs on the same local network should now be able to all simultaneously connect.
