    I can't change my Xbox Privacy Settings because it's decided I'm a child member of an Xbox...


    So, I was trying to play online No Man's Sky with a friend. We'd been excited, and opened up only to discover that for some reason the multiplayer options simply weren't available to me. I looked it up and found out that one possible problem could be that I needed to change my Privacy Settings.

    So I went to do that, only to discover that my account was being detected as a Child in an Xbox Family, not allowing me to access my settings.

    Until minutes ago when I created one in an attempt to fix my own settings, I was in no such group. And I still cannot fix my own settings.

    What the hell do I do to fix this?

    :)

    I can't change my Xbox Privacy Settings because it's decided I'm a child member of an Xbox Family. I'm not. How do I fix this?

    Hello, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    You'll need a parent (adult) account in order to change your privacy settings.

    The parent account will need to create a family group and add you as a "Member" while they are the "Organiser" in order to change your settings. Here's a detailed explanation of how to do that https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/account-bil....

    If you're not on a child account or to know how to change the settings from an adult account please see here https://support.xbox.com/en-US/help/family-onli...

    Refer to the "Manage settings on Xbox.com" tab, underneath it you'll find how to manage your privacy settings on an Adult or Child account.

    Hello!

    Thanks for bringing this inquiry to our attention here on the forums. I understand you're having issues setting up your Settings on a child account is that correct? You will need to sign into an adult account that is a member of the same Microsoft Family
    as the child account to change the settings for the child account.

    xbox.com doesn't consider my account as an adult because I got an update early.

    I'm on my only account attached, which it claims to be the child account and Xbox privacy and
    online safety settings
    it just sends me to:
