    I have just launched minecraft as of 19th November 2021, and it came up with this message I looked at my settings and all day “ALLOW” so I’m confused why it is saying this.

    Cannot play in Realms due to how my Microsoft account is set up.

    Hello, how are you? My name is Mateus. I'm an Independent Advisor and I'll be glad to help you today.

    First, welcome to the Xbox community. Seeing the problem you are having, please check your privacy settings via the link below.

    https://account.xbox.com/en-us/Settings

    The setting you should look at is on the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10 devices Online Safety tab

    The option you should check is ''You can create and join clubs'' it has to be set to allow.

    - If that doesn't work, please try the solutions below.

    Solution 1:

    Press the Xbox button to open the guide.

    Select Profile & system > Settings > Account > Remove accounts.

    Select the account that you want to remove, and then select Remove to confirm.

    After removing the account follow the procedure below.

    Step 1. Press and hold the Xbox button on the console for at least 10 seconds to open the Power center.

    Step 2. Then unplug the power supply from your console and wait for 3 minutes.

    Step 3. Plug the power supply back into the Xbox console.

    Step 4. Press the Xbox button on the console to turn it on again.

    Now add your account again.

    Solution 2:

    Press the Xbox button.

    Open Settings.

    Go to Network and select Network settings.

    Select Advanced settings.

    Select Alternate MAC Address.

    Select Clear.

    Select Restart.

    *Thank you in advance for contacting the community, I hope this can help you.

    Minecraft on xbox one can't play realms no matter what I do

    My microsoft account is not a child account but it still has the same "error message" when I sign in with a child account. (I'm saying error message as in "you cannot play realms because of how your microsoft account
    is set up")

    Minecraft "You cannot play on Realms because of how your Microsoft account is set up."

    I've been playing on my Realm for months now, but today, for no reason, i cannot log into live services. "You cannot play on Realms because of how your Microsoft Account is set up".

    I've gone to the recommended Privacy and Online Safety section of Microsoft online. All the settings are FINE. I am not a child. I am 40 years old and have never been part of a family account setup. Yet I cannot change my account settings like I'm some child.
    why?
    Yea its probably just a bug or something or maybe you're settings

    Minecraft Multiplayer Disabled

    Sometimes you cannot play multiplayer due to how your Microsoft account is set up!

    Please sign in to account.xbox.com/settings and ensure none of the multiplayer permissions are blocked.

    I also suggest checking the link below, as it has all the steps to take to edit those privacy settings:

    I'm trying to set up an Xbox Live or Microsoft Account (including Realms access for Child Accounts!)

    If you are a child account you will not be granted access to the link above, as it requires an adult account from the family group to change the settings on behalf of you!
