    Change email for Xbox account without access to current email address


    Hi, went through a bad break up about a month ago.

    My ex is the one with her email tied to my Xbox account. (Didn't have a Microsoft account a the time) She is being difficult refuses to change it over to my email.

    Is there some way I can swap the email addresses and remove hers from the account?

    I bought the Xbox, the majority of games and game saves are mine. She doesn't even have an Xbox at her current residence.

    :)

    Change email for Xbox account without access to current email address

    if the email is a Microsoft email address (@live, @outlook, etc) it is not possible to remove it from an Xbox account.

    if it isn't a Microsoft email then the only way is for her to add an alias email address (your new email address) and then remove hers but it would have to be done by her.

    this is for security reasons to prevent account theft.

    Can I delete a profile remotely?

    I would change the email address to,or at least the password to access the email address.

    If he is able to access the email he will be able to find out the new password to your xbox account.

    Switching gamertags and microsoft accounts when you also play xbox games on a win8 phone

    you can Change msa on https://account.live.com without that 30d, but you Need to be careful when changing MS own email address, Outlook / live / MSN / Hotmail because you actually loose Access to your
    email accounts if you disconnect them like that.

    by doing it on your xbox you only move gamertags without touching the email accounts and other Services.

    When you
    create a Microsoft account
    , you can choose to sign in with any email account you currently use. We recommend using an email account that you monitor frequently. You’ll need access to this email address to sign in to your Xbox console. Simply type the email
    address in the field and we’ll walk you through the rest. When creating a Microsoft account, you can use:

    • An email address with a Microsoft domain such as @live.com, @outlook.com, or @msn.com
    • Any valid email address that you use and monitor regularly
    Note If you use a non-Microsoft email address to create your account, we will send a validation email to that address to verify that you have access. Simply find the email and follow the
    instructions to complete validation.

    If you don’t currently have an email address you can use, or if you’re setting up an account for a child who does not yet have an email account, you can opt to create a new Outlook.com email address during
    signup.

    Changing xbox account to son

    The only thing you'd really be able to do is change the email address associated with the account or add a new one as an alias. This can come with complications if the email address that the account currently uses is a MS address (Hotmail, outlook) because
    removing it will delete the email address itself.

    You can read up on changing the email address on an account
