    how can a child play games when parent not signed in


    I'm feeling really old here. I want my kid to be able to play Minecraft and etc. without my having to be singed in. If I'm signed in, he can switch profiles and use my access right? I'm sure there's something simple that I'm missing. I just want kids to
    be able to play games on the xbox.

    :)

    XBox One Time Limits not working

    Thanks for the replies!

    So when your son is able to sign into the account on the days that it is set to blocked is it possible that there is also an adult account signed in even though its not being used. If a parental account is signed in at the same time as the child account
    then it assumes that the child account has permission since they are playing together. If the child has figured this out you can Set up a Passkey
    to prevent the parental account from being signed in.

    A passkey protects against a child signing in as the parent and overriding parental controls. A personal passkey prevents a child from simply clicking on the parent’s picture, signing in as the parent, and changing the child’s otherwise
    parentally controlled settings.

    cant play my game

    *Go to My Xbox, and open your profile.

    *Select Manage Account.

    *Select Promote Child Account.

    *Follow the required steps.

    If the "Child" account is NOT at least 18 years old then this is how to modify the Parental Control settings (Note: You can NOT completely disable Parental Controls, games that have ratings above the necessary age can NOT be downloaded on the "Child "account):-

    *Sign in using the "Child" account's Live email address and password.

    *Click on the gamertag in the upper right hand corner of the site.

    *Click the Manage Profile button.

    *Under the Gamer Profile heading, choose "Family Settings".

    *It will now ask to sign in as the "Parent" account.

    *After signing in, you can change the Parental Control limitations.

    *When done, click the save button at the bottom of the page.
