    Change a microsoft adult account to a child account.


    Like thousands of other Microsoft users with teenagers addicted to the Xbox, I'd like to change an adult account to a child account.Has this been fixed YET? The issue being that I don't want to cancel the adult account straight out or we'll lose all of the
    games, which, I've paid for, progress and "skins."

    In past YEARS good people have asked Microsoft for a fix. Is there one? Yet?!

    :)

    Privacy & Safety settings different between Xbox and Website

    Hey Xwarrior,

    Did this account graduate naturally from a child account to an adult account or was there a birthday change attempt? You can change the birthdate to the Microsoft account but it will not change the birthdate that was entered originally to the Xbox profile.

    In other words, a child account will remain a child account until it graduates naturally to an adult account. No way around it.

    I setup my kids accounts as adult. How can I change it to kids?

    Hi Fellwo gamer,

    Once and adult account is made, there is no way of changing it to a child account. You can change the date of birth on Microsoft. On Xbox, you are unable to change it. So it will register always as adult account. You would need to

    make another account set as a child account.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Is the account in question a child's or adult's account? If its a child account you may want to change it to an adult account and give it a shot.

    Taking off the parent account

    Hi Hendo,

    Thanks for coming to the forums. If the account is still a child it is recommended to keep the adult account assigned to the family until the child account graduates to an adult account. If you are an adult and made a child account in error there is

    ways you can prove your age.
    As on Xbox.com you are unable to change the birthdate at all.

    Hope this helps.

    I can't remember 100% but I am sure whoever set up the child account can change it. Like if you made an adult account on the xbox before making the child account that adult account can change wether the child account is a child account or and adult one.
    I will just test this out myself now and post how it went
