    Changed Primary Alias on Microsoft Account - now need to use my password to sign into Xbox One


    Hello -

    When @outlook.com emails were made available last year, I registered an alias with my primary @live.com account. A couple of days ago I made the @outlook.com alias primary and since then the Kinect has not been able to sign me in - but requires my password.

    Do I need to follow the instructions for switching my GT to a new email? The email itself isn't new since it's associated with the same Microsoft Account (and has been) that the GT is associated with. But I can't find anywhere on the Xbox to register that
    change.

    :)

    Being prompted for Microsoft account password to sign in every time.

    Having the same issue on my Xbox One. It's driving me nuts. It all started when I changed my email alias.

    I'm starting to think my Xbox One logged in account HAS to match the primary (email) alias. Just switched my primary alias back to what I had originally, I really hope this fixes it. So frustrating. Microsoft really needs to fix all this.

    BTW there is no password at sign-in setting on the Xbox One. Is T Ghost's solution for the 360?

    microsoft account info help

    I added an additional alias to my microsoft account and changed it to the primary alias to the new email. It still has my old primary alias on the xbox one settings. Is there a way to get it to show the new primary alias.

    hey there Coryduude. No you really don't need to. Just go to Settings>> Sign in, Security & Passcode.

    Then make sure Save password is checked as well as Kinect sign in. If that does not work. Go back to settings>>Scroll right>> Remove account chose your account the read it afterwards. Make sure you save the password. you can use the @outlook.com account
    to sign in.

    Hello ChloéThery,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. We understand that you are interested in

    changing your primary alias
    . If you are receiving that error message, it means the email address you want to use is already the primary alias of a Microsoft account. You must first log in to that account. If you need help

    resetting the password
    , you can use our support article. Once you have logged in to that account, you can change the primary alias for it. After you have set up a new primary alias on that account, you can remove the email that you want from it. At that
    point, you can go ahead and use that email address as the primary alias of your main account. Be sure to let us know the results!

    Changed email associated with account, but my console is still using the old one

    As an update, I re-added the old email and was able to sign in using my new password, but now I can't re-change my alias to the new email address. Will my Xbox Live account ever recognize a change in the primary email associated with the account?
