  1. Help set up account wrong and need to change without losing my sons stuff


    When i first got my son an xbox i didnt know what i was doing so i set up an account but his "user name" and everything he plays is set up to me. Therefore he can purchase things and change things without my permission. I have the family app but I cant really use it because it looks like he is the organizer not the child.

    :)

    Help set up account wrong and need to change without losing my sons stuff

    Hello, Kathleen Thanks for reaching out! My name is Lucas. I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be happy to assist you today.

    Unfortunately, nothing can be transferred between accounts. You would need to either create another account to your son - he will still be able to play the games on your account, but all his progress will be lost - or let him play on your account but change the account password and select an option to request your password for every purchase. But if your son find out how to turn this option off he would still make purchases on your account.

    Feel free to ask back any questions.

    transfering a xbox gamertag to new account

    I’m glad you’re asking. I set up my son’s Xbox with my account before I knew the world would tie into it. It shows him as an adult. I need to move his gamer info to a new account without losing his accomplishments. I also need to restrict settings because
    he is chatting with people and I need to stop that access. I think I can do that once I transfer him to a child account.

    Moving gamertag to different account

    It sounds like that account is set up as an adult account. Adult accounts cannot changed to a child account. Your only option is to create a new child account for your son. he will lose progress, as he will have to start his games again on his new
    account.

    My account which his gamertag is set up on is an adult account. Surely there must be a way of moving Gamertags between accounts?!? I've set up a child account for him but just need to move his gamertag.

    Creating a new gamertag or losing the progress on his current one is really not an option.....

    Can't get my son registered - we are in different locations - How do I sort?

    To add to that, you can't change an account's region once it's created. If your son's account is set to the wrong region, you will need to create a new account for him. Sorry for the confusion.
