  1. Console Streaming and Security


    When I disconnect a console streaming session on my Android devices, the Xbox itself remains signed in with my account. If someone else then physically powers up the console, they are able to essentially "impersonate" me without any additional security/passcode verification. My Xbox is set up such that all users always have to login with passcode, I am the adult and I have two kids with restricted accounts. Currently, if I don't explicitly log out at the end of my session, one of my kids can then power up Xbox, skip their own login prompt and play under my account, thus avoiding all the time and content restrictions I set up. Ideally, if console detects an actual "console," non-streaming session being resumed, it should ask for passcode again - sort of like Remote Desktop works on Windows, requiring to authenticate once the session is resumed locally after remote disconnects.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Logout of Xbox Live account on my Xbox X
    2. Power down Xbox
    3. Start console streaming session on my Android phone/tablet (Samsung S10/Samsung Tab S2)
    4. Disconnect in the streaming app
    5. Power up Xbox by pressing button on the console
    6. Power up kid's assigned controller
    7. Press B at his (kids) login/passcode prompt
    8. Voila - his controller, my account and no more restrictions....

    For now I try to logout before disconnecting, but there could be situation like connectivity loss, where this is not possible. Please let me know if I'm doing this wrong or this is something that needs to be formally reported as a bug.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Xbox Stream kann in der Xbox App nicht gestartet werden[Xbox stream can not be started in the Xbox app]

    Since you got the error about saying you must sign in on the console first, please turn on the console and enable the option to log in automatically without having to enter a password:

    Select Settings. Select All Settings. Under Account, select Sign-in, security & passkey. Under Sign-in, security & passkey, select Change my sign-in & security preferences. Choose one of the options: "No barriers" is no password.

    If you have a passkey you may also have to disable that:
    https://support.xbox.com/my-account/security/delete-passkey


    Then this should work fine on your PC with streaming without having to have you log in each time on the console.

    Watching movies on Xbox Browser or any other App ?

    Hello SA_455,

    We thank you for bringing this inquiry to our forums community, and understand that this concerns using websites to stream movies on your Xbox One S console.

    Unfortunately, these websites are not supported as they are not recommended due to possible security concerns in reference to account information/data. There are not available steps in order to resolve being able to stream movies through these unrecommended
    websites.

    Best wishes!

    Thank you so much for the quick help. Unfortunately, the Xbox is not only used by me but also by other flatmates and I don't want everyone to have access to my profile.
    Temporarily, I've used a rarely used profile for this purpose, but this is actually just a workaround and not a real solution to the problem. The Xbox even indicates that I'm starting the stream with my profile. This means it actually detects that I am
    logged in, but it still doesn't work.

    Internet explorer on xbox one keeps crashing!!!

    Hello.

    Xbox's browser Microsoft Edge, will crash when not on a secure website.

    It will also crash on some stream site, especially the one that require a flash player.

    It's best to find a more secure site or use a computer for those current sites.
