  1. Changing the password on a kid account


    I am the Parent account on my little brothers Xbox Live account, and i have recently received a message from my mother that they need his password, which I forgot. Going through the password reset instructions on the Microsoft site get me nowhere, I've received
    and entered multiple single-use codes and all have come up as incorrect. I've also noticed that it will change the account email from the child's to mine(parent), I left my email and changed it back to the child's and both ways have led to a failed attempt.
    Has anyone else ran into this problem, and how were you able to resolve it?

    Thank you.

    :)

    How to password protect your Xbox LIVE profile

    Xbox LIVE password overview

    It is possible to download your Xbox LIVE profile to several different consoles. You may need to do this if you have more than one Xbox 360 console, or you want to play games at a friend's house. In such a situation, you may want to password protect your Xbox LIVE account so that no one else can sign in using your profile.

    Set the console to remember your password

    Once you have downloaded your Xbox LIVE profile to a console, you will be asked if you want the console to remember your password. The Remember Password option is usually off by default. This means that you will be asked for your Microsoft account password every time you sign into Xbox LIVE.

    If you don't want to be asked for your Microsoft account password every time you sign into Xbox LIVE, select the Remember Password option.

    Change the password protection on your profile

    You are required to set the Remember Password option after you download your Xbox LIVE profile. However, you can change the password protection on your Xbox LIVE profile any time.

    If you don't need a password to sign in:

    Sign into your Xbox LIVE profile. After you have entered your Microsoft account password, select the Remember Password option.

    If you choose the Remember Password option, you will not be asked for your Microsoft account password the next time you sign into your Xbox LIVE profile.

    If you need a password to sign in:

    You can restrict access to your Xbox LIVE profile on any console using your Microsoft account password.

    Steps to follow

    1) Sign in using your Xbox LIVE gamertag.

    2) Under Settings, select Account and then Account Security

    3) Choose the option for Password at Sign In.

    4) Select Require Password Here

    You will be asked for your Microsoft account password the next time you sign into your Xbox LIVE profile.

    How to password protect your Xbox LIVE profile remotely

    If you downloaded your Xbox LIVE profile to another console and it is not password protected, or someone has compromised your password, you can change the password from a remote location so that no one else can access your profile.

    Change your Microsoft account

    1) Sign into accounts.live.com using your Microsoft account.

    2) Go to Account Information and, next to Password, click Change.

    You can also use your console to change your Microsoft account password.

    Note: If the Xbox LIVE profile you downloaded does not require a password to sign in (You selected the Remember Password option), you will not be able to restrict someone from signing into your Xbox profile even if you change your Microsoft account password.

    You can remove your Microsoft account password so that other people cannot access your Xbox profile on other consoles. This will ensure that a password is required before signing into your Xbox profile.

    Remotely set a profile password from a computer:

    1) Sign into your Xbox LIVE account.

    2) Under Settings, select Account, and then Account Security

    3) Choose the option for Password at Sign In.

    4) Select On All Other Consoles.

    Once you have done this, a password will be required to sign into your Xbox LIVE profile on all other consoles.

    I'm not sure what happened here.

    The way me and my friend did it as to not worry about passwords is to bring up your password change settings on phone or PC first. Then go to home console, enter his gamer tag and enter password. As soon as it logs his in, have friend apply his new password on phone or PC that you had setup first. Log friend account out. Log you back in. Have friend do same on his. As long as you change your password and as long as your account gets logged out of other console, your account cant be accessed without giving new password.

    Xbox parent controls app

    So your kids have a child account or an adult account? They can only change settings if they account was setup as a parent account or they know the parent account password.

    Screen time

    Change your password. Sign out of the console and do not have it auto-sign you in.

    Do not give your account information to your kids; so they have to use their own account.

    It's sad people tend to do this a lot People attempt too scam people. If your password on that account has changed and your kid can no longer sign in he needs too recover password soon as possible.

    Xbox kids screen time and xbox live

    Well, the first thing I would do is change your account password and not tell them. That way, your kids cannot sign into your account. You can set it to require a passkey that only you know, so you don't have to re-enter the password every time.
