  1. Adult Account No Longer Available...How to Free Child Account?


    Recently, I have been trying to replay Minecraft from my old account (since that's how I got the Windows 10 Edition) on my PC in order to play with friends on Xbox. To do this, I had to sign into my old account, which is still considered a "child" account
    (even though I am over 18 now). That means, through the privacy settings enabled, I cannot play with my friends online. As the error message puts it: "You cannot play online multiplayer through Xbox Live because of how your account is set up. This can be changed
    in your privacy & online safety settings on Xbox.com." This would be easy enough to fix if the parent account's email still existed, which it doesn't. That means I am unable to access the privacy settings on there...

    Is there any way to remove the child account without having to sign into the parent account? Alternatively, is there any way to change the privacy settings or log into the account in question to make the changes?

    :)

    if you used the correct birthdate, it should become an adult automatically. Otherwise, you can promote the child account to adult by adding a payment instrument and a billing information to your Microsoft Account.

    you're parent's may still be able to recover their account via the secret questions etc, even if the old email is invalid.

    The age of your account is determined by the birthdate you entered when you created your account.

    If according to that birthdate your account is 18 years old, it'll automatically become an adult account.

    While you can try to see and change your birthdate at https://account.microsoft.com/profile/ it will not change the birthdate of your Xbox profile. So you will still be
    stuck with needing an adult parent account.

    If you do have an adult account, you can try to sign in to that adult account, and go to
    https://account.microsoft.com/family and add your child account to that account's family.

    Or if the account is incorrectly classified as a child account, try to
    verify the incorrect child account to be an adult account according to the instructions here
