    Block app (Fortnite) for kids on Xbox?


    Hi!

    My son plays Fortnite way to much, and I want to block it for him for a while.

    I have changed my account to be included in a "family" (the one that is used on the Xbox), and have also created a new account,

    that is the "administrator".

    From the administrator account, I have selected that the Xbox account wont be allow to use apps and games rated above 10years old.

    But still, he can start and use the app Fortnite? Why? (Fortnite has an age limit of 12years old)

    How do I block Fortnite in the Xbox?

    Br

    Benny

    :)

    What do you mean with "redownload the account"?

    In this case, don't want him to be able to play for a couple of weeks, that's why I would like to block it.

    But I can't find out how to do it??

    After that, I will probably do as you mention, use a time limit :)

    Thanks for helping!

    After such changes you often have to redownload the accounts to make the changes work.

    Btw I would recommend you not to block the game but to limit his weekly gaming time ! So he can learn to plan his gaming time and to learn limits ! 😉

    BUG - Cross platform play does not enable for child accounts no matter what settings you set. This needs EPIC/MS attention

    Thats why kids need to play kids games not fortnite...

    How does everyone fell about encounters with minors on age restricted games, and how should it be dealt with as an xbox ambassador ?

    I have only encountered kids ingame while playing games like CoD and Fortnite. I generally chat in party chat to deter language slip ups on open mic XD but i have muted and blocked accounts before as they were kids. I have never thought about getting social
    media information from ingame.

    Password for downloads?

    First of all: Make sure that your kids do have their own child account, and that they are NOT using your adult account (as this can't be restricted). Then follow the instructions here to set limits for purchasing content https://support.microsoft.com/help/4047310/microsoft-account-require-kids-to-ask-before-buying-stuff

    If free content can't be blocked this way, or if a kid already downloaded an app you don't want them to use, you can use these instructions to block certain apps in the Activity section of the family section for that child account: https://support.microsoft.com/help/4026341/microsoft-account-block-inappropriate-apps-games-media
