I haven't been installing anything on my iPad Mini for the past few weeks. But previously, I just had to tap on "Install", enter my Apple ID password and go.
Now, for every new application, even those free ones, I have to confirm each time, that I'm 17 or over. And then App Store asks to enter my credit card information. If I disagree and hit "Cancel", installation process is interrupted and I can't install any application, even free one.
I don't trust Apple at all and I'm not willing to share my credit card information, especially that I'm installing only free applications.
I'm pretty sure that I haven't changed anything in the configuration of my iPad Mini for ages.
Am I missing some significant change to the App Store or this is some kind of bug or virus? Is there anything I can do in this situation? How can I install a free application from the App Store, without having to share my credit card information with Apple?
