If you'd like to prevent against unauthorized or accidental purchases on your Mac, you can set it up to prompt for your password every time you buy content from the App Store
Click on Apple
menu > System Preferences
> App Store
and then go to Password Settings
. Click on the dropdown menu next to Purchases and in-app purchases
and select between Always Require
and Require After 15 Minutes
The new setting will apply to both your in-store and in-app purchases.
Mac OS X El Capitan
takes things a bit further and enables users to activate password verification for free downloads. To enable this feature, simply click on the dropdown menu next to Free Downloads
and select Require Password
