    How do you keep my son from sharing his real name with friends in Minecraft?


    Hello, When my son tried to connect with his friend as a "Friend" in Minecraft, the checkbox to share his real name with him was checked, and it was impossible to uncheck it. How do you uncheck it or have it set so he does not share his real name?

    I looked at this, but I was unable to follow it. I'm not sure where I am supposed to find the Xbox icon, and the menu was different when I tried to follow it in account.xbox.com/settings.

    Please let me know how I can do this. Thank you!

    :)

    Hi, thank you for your response! Which settings? In Minecraft or accounts.xbox.com?

    Change my childs name on Xbox

    Hi Danny,

    if I have my real name and surname in "How you look" but "block sharing my real name with friends", will it still show what is written in "How you look" (which in this case
    is also my real name) or will not show anything apart from my gametag?

    What I am trying to understand is if when you block sharing your real name it actually stops sharing what's written in the "How you look" tab, or if stops sharing your "real
    name" (known from somewhere else in my registration).

    Thanks

    How do You Remove Real Name on Dashboard Log-in?

    Hi again, so I was having a think about this because recently my Xbox has been asking me to setup real name sharing which I keep refusing. I can't remember seeing my real name in the account sign-in menu which made think that what if you disabled sharing,
    assuming you have it on?

    Disable real name sharing

    You can turn off name sharing at any time from Settings:

    1.Go to the Home screen.

    2.Press the Menu button on your controller.

    3.Select Settings.

    4.Go to Privacy & online safety.

    5.Select Custom.

    6.Scroll right to the desired setting:

    ◦Share my real name

    ◦Share my real name with friends of friends

    Have you played with the above settings? Maybe give that a go, above information from here:

    support.xbox.com/.../real-name-sharing

    Real Names

    @Dragon how am I lost from your post.

    "Here is the quote from Major Nelson: "Most importantly, we heard your feedback that to make this most useful you need full control. You’ll be able to share with all your friends, a subset of your choosing, friends of friends or none at
    all. The choice is yours".

    You are aware that this is a idea that is being borowed from somebody else right? The whole point of real name was to get you to link your FaceBook page to your gaming console. Thats why they let you use your profile pic as your gamer pic. On the system
    they borowed this "real names" from they latter updated their app on your phone to let you use any picture but that's the way real names work. Real name Real pic Real you.

    I understand that X1 is going to do there own litte tweaks on the system to customize it. But they are copying it which is fine and they should. But they should do it right and let you use your pics. and if they do they have to seperate my friends and the
    friends of my friends.
