    Kinect auto log in still asks for passkey


    Hi,

    Kinect recognizes me, but i still have to type in my passkey.

    is there an option to sign in using kinect, without typing the passkey?

    i thought biometrical data would be save enough to sign in...

    :)

    Profiles : preventing use of, and editing profile name

    If you go into Sign-In & Security Preferences, set it to 'ask for my passkey' if you want it to always ask for your passkey before signing in or buying things. Although if you still want to be signed in automatically when Kinect sees you, use 'check that
    it is me' and it will still ask you for the passkey when making purchases or if you sign in with a controller.

    You're permitted to make one free change per gamertag after creation, so that could be the reason for that. Can you use those email addresses to sign into
    https://account.live.com? From there you should be able to edit the profile name, which will be reflected on the console.

    Problem with passkey sign-in

    I have my profile on 2 xbox one consoles.

    My friends console and my own.

    I want a passkey to sign in on my friends console

    And just use Kinect to auto-sign me in on my own console

    Problem is that when I put a passkey on my friends console it automatically syncs to my own console which then starts asking me for a passkey.

    I want it like it was on the 360. I could have a passkey on one console and auto-sign in on another.

    How do I do this on the xb1?

    Hey T SAW DC,

    Unfortunately biometrical data is not enough, you will need to type in the passkey to sign in.

    If you're about family members making unauthorized purchases I would recommend removing the sign in passkey and making a passkey only for making purchases.

    The Auto-Sign In: Please Turn it Off!

    Hi there,

    When you are logged into the account you don't want to auto sign-in, go to Settings > Sign-in, Security & Passkey. That's where you can turn off the Kinect Sign-in.

    -

    I hope this helps.

    Passkey didn’t work!

    What Passkey option did you set? If you set a custom sign-in option that included "Don't ask, just sign me in; Ask for passkey for: Purchases, Changing my settings" then that may be how your friend can still log into your account without the passkey. Alternatively,
    maybe you set a Passkey that is too short or easy (eg mine is a 6 button combination) or your friend saw you use it.

    Kinect auto sign in disable?

    To disable the Kinect auto-sign in feature, you need to;

    1. Go to your settings.

    2. Go to "Sign-in, security & passkey"

    3. Select "Change your sign-in & security preferences"

    4. Select the option "No barriers" to retain your current settings minus the Kinect auto-sign in.

    Why isn't there an Auto-Login without Kinect?

    [quote user="FullHornet"]

    There is no auto log in without it because the whole way that it works is by scanning your face. Therefore no kinnect no auto login.

    [/quote]

    That's the problem. Why can't auto login work without Kinect? He's not asking for a magical feature that determines which user is playing and attempts to log them in. He's asking for a feature like the Xbox 360's auto login that will automatically log in
    the same profile (or profiles) every time. Why does his system need to scan for faces and log him in based on that information rather than simply logging him in automatically without scanning when he's going to be the only one playing?
