Hey all,
while I was googling around, I found this article which shows that clearing the app data from Settings also clears the PIN saved in Google Play. The PIN in the Play Store is meant to act as authentication for purchasing apps. I've tested this on Gingerbread 2.3.7 w/ latest Play Store and it's working.

p.s. - Though this post is quite old, this still works.
