Fortnite: So the kids are asking for V-Bucks for Christmas.


Here we give you the lowdown on What V-Bucks are and how you can buy them.

V-bucks are the in game currency for Fortnite. Fortnite is a free to play game and Vbucks allow the player to purchase cosmetic items from Item Shop and get the Battle Pass. V-bucks do not improve the players ability to win in anyway.

You can get V-Bucks from the same place the games online store. They can be purchased with pre-purchased credit, or through payment details linked to the store account. This makes them easy to get, but it can be too easy, as parents have found out to their cost.

Here is how to block your child making purchases without your permission.

Xbox One – Create a passkey for your account to sign in and make purchases, and don’t forget to sign out of your account every time you finish using the console. Parental controls help you manage accounts for your children.

PlayStation – Make child accounts on the PS4 and use parental controls to manage them. You’ll need to authorise any purchases they want to make.

iOS – Use Restrictions on your child’s iPhone/iPod Touch to stop purchases. Disallow in-app purchases for Fortnite (and others) and protect them with a passcode.

Microsoft Store – Turn off “Streamline my purchase experience” so a password is needed for each purchase. Check your payment details aren’t saved in the account settings.
