  1. How to set up a family account with a child that doesn't live with me


    Ok community. Let's see if anyone has run this gauntlet.

    Here are the factors:

    • I want to take on the subscription for Xbox Live for my kiddo (10 years old.)
    • They live with their other parent.
    • Their account and game data has been set up under their other parent's email/credentials.
    • I set up my payment/wallet on their console, but would like to manage all this online since I don't have access to that house/console much.
    • I used to have a Live Gold but don't anymore. I could renew it if I can make his a child account but don't want to pay for two since it's all for him anyway.
    Anyone know if Microsoft will accommodate this? Can I just open a subscription and move his account (that's under the other parent) to mine as a child account?

    :)

    How to set up a family account with a child that doesn't live with me

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    To manage a child's account you have to create an account for him and add him to a family group. Within the family group you can manage their account, add money, restrict the use of content and time on the console, authorize purchases and so on.

    You can either subscribe using their account or subscribe with your account and put your account home on your child's console. By placing your account as home on your child's console he will have access to the games/subscription you buy and play using his own account.

    I can't change the privacy and online safety settings!

    Same issue here, there is a working Microsoft family account my son uses on a daily base.

    Trying to change the privay and online setting for that account via the xbox-live portal is not possible.

    reason: the child acccount gamer tag doesn't show up

    any further "how-to" advice is meaningless as there is no account entry to chose from

    Can't create family on xbox one 's'

    Xbox S (the interface) can be frustrating until you get completely used to it. Personally I think that's true for all Ux/Ui accounts, but I think the links below might help you in at least the set up process. That said, "connect to service" may mean you
    are literally not connected to the Xbox Live services yet. That could be a WiFi issue, Internet service or an account issue. Can't tell without more information though.

    Hello Lenny=best,

    Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. An adult account will need to be tied to the child account through a family in order to regulate the

    child account settings
    . Once the settings are updated for the child account, the child account should be able to redeem the prepaid code for the game. The article entitled

    how to add a child to a family account
    contains information on how to set up a family. Be sure to let us know the results!
