In using both an iPad and Apple TV, there is a parental restriction option that supposedly prevents unauthorized charges by requiring a 4 digit code first. In purchasing from iTunes via the iPad, the numbers are hidden while being typed. On Apple TV, the numbers are visible for 1 second on the TV screen. Thus, children can easily memorize the code and subsequently make unauthorized charges. In Apple TV, the code should be hidden too.
