    Game Share issues


    For a few years, my friend and I have been doing game share over our Xbox Ones, Included with that was Game Pass and Xbox Live. Recently though Game Pass and Live stopped transferring over, he still has Game Pass and Live but I do not. Anyone know a fix, have game sharing policies changed?

    :)

    Game sharing issue

    Is there a difference in who owns each of these games?

    For the purposes of this example, you're Profile A and your brother/family member is Profile B. Console A is the console that Profile A primarily plays on; Console B belongs to Profile B.

    So does Profile A own GTA (which is the one that works) and Profile B owns Destiny? (Or maybe the other way around?)

    For two users in the same household sharing games, Profile A would need to make Console B his Home Xbox and Profile B would need to make Console A his Home Xbox. My suspicion is that different profiles own the different games and only one of you (whoever
    owns GTA) made the other console their Home Xbox, hence the error.

    If this is the case, the owner of Destiny needs to make the other console their Home Xbox and then this should work.

    Let us know if my guess as to the situation is wrong though, and we can work from there to rectify this.

    Game sharing issue.

    Sorry for the extra post here. If your friend and neighbor can sign your GT into his console without you being there that actually CAN risk your account. His kids can log into your account when nobody is home and cheat in COD. Spout nasty insults on XBL
    etc. Its also a violation to play on someone elses account. Hence why its dumb to automatically sign you in on your account especially on someone elses xbox.

    But if you lock your account so you have to enter a password every time how is your neighbor going to play the game you shared if you are at work or at school ?

    I didn't intend my message to sound like I was reading you the riot act. You asked for MS links.

    With the Home setting, a lot of people have been sharing games with friends on separate consoles, but it doesn't necessarily mean they gave away account information.

    No. That is not an old version, it's just not good information.

    This is the official information about the Home setting -
    support.xbox.com/.../my-home-xbox


    This is the Code of Conduct -
    www.xbox.com/.../CodeOfConduct
    which says:

    Don’t engage in fraud or unauthorized transactions. For example, don't:

    Lend, transfer, sell, or otherwise provide third parties access to your accounts or Gamertags

    You can sign into a friend's Xbox and set it as your Home console without them needing your account information.

    So that was an old version ? because it was officially a feature on xbox one.

    You have an official MS link then ?
