    Activity screen blocking apps and games


    There are a few apps and games I have chosen to block on my child's Xbox that show up on the activity page of Microsoft Account. Next to the app or game it indicates the time view or played and then the option to block. I have blocked several and when
    I do that it shows they are blocked and then the option to undo. The issue I have is when i leave that page and then go back to it, it doesn't show they are blocked any longer. Why?

    :)

    Its weird, if o go to the Always blocked page it shows they are blocked even though going back to the activity page it give the option to block. Not sure why. But I guess if it shows they are blocked on the always blocked page then its all good.

    I don't see a save option. as soon as i click block it states its blocked and gives the option to unblock. but if i leave the page and come back it gives the option to block again as if it is unblocked.

    Have you tried using the apps after blocking them to make sure they are blocked?

    Remove Game from Account

    One of the thing the instructions for Blocking inappropriate apps and games does not cover very well is how to block the game or app. Follow the instructions above to enable the this feature then to accually block the game for his account perform the following
    steps:

    Select Activities in the top menu:

    Expand Apps and Games:

    If you don't see the game or app you want to block change the "View Activiy From" time line to show the game he played during that time period.

    Next to the game you want to block - Select "Block"

    he will no longer be able to play this game without accessing your parent account and removing the block
