  1. Child account cannot add friends even though Family Settings are set to allow friends adds.


    In the settings for the child account following these steps through the menus.. settings-account-family settings-manage family members-child account profile-privacy and online safety-view details and customize-friends and clubs- You can add friends is set
    to Allow.

    But when I go to add a friend it still says something has gone wrong and I need to have a parent account go in and change settings to allow friends to be added.

    Not sure what else I am supposed to do here...

    I tried setting it to Adult defaults in the settings but thst never seems to take and when i go back into the menus it goes back to custom.

    :)

    Verifique se a data de nascimento da conta está maior do que 18 anos, por exemplo: 12/10/1998
    Its not over 18 years old, its a child account under 18 so we can manage it as the parents for things like content restrictions and screen time. Something recently went crazy with the settings and now it can't add friends despite me having that family setting
    to allow friends to be added.

    How can I change my child's (MS Family) permissions to allow them to add friends in Minecraft (Win10 PC version - Not Java)?

    I have activated all these settings and my child’s profile still cannot add friends on minecraft. I can join his world but he cannot join my world. He shows 1 friend on the friends tab but it doesn’t show any joinable friends or my world inside the friends
    tab. I have even changed all settings to allow everything (defeats the purpose) and I still cannot add friends on his account. Please help!!!!!!

    Can't add friends from a child account due to server error

    Hello, most of the time this can be because the child account settings are actually set so that the children cannot add/accept friends on xbox live due to age restrictions. This is something that you can fix within your family settings/child account settings.

    Problemas com a conta -[Translation - Account issues]

    Hello JoãoPedroXR,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. We understand that you are unable to add friends due to your Microsoft account's privacy settings. If you have a child account, you must

    add your child account to a family by using an adult account. This will allow the adult account to

    alter the privacy settings of the child account
    so the child account can add friends and utilize other social features. The articles we provided contain steps on how to complete this process. Be sure to let us know the results!
