    Minecraft: Disable “Friends of Friends” in Multiplayer Settings


    Hello,

    Im trying to set up a very safe and controlled environment for my two kids (5 & 7 years old) to play Minecraft with a couple of their friends. I noticed that the settings for multiplayer games default to allowing “Friends of Friends” for any new worlds they create. I would prefer that this option be disabled, where they can only choose “Friends” or “Invite Only.”

    I’ve looked everywhere to see if I can either change this default, or restrict this option. Is there a way to do this that I am missing? Both of my kids have their own account that is nested under my account as a Family account. I have configured all that I can in terms of settings on my Microsoft account, and looked through options for their child accounts. Nothing seems to give me this ability.

    They are both playing Minecraft on iPads, so I hope this question was posted in the proper place. I couldnt find a category for this.

    Thanks.

    :)

    Help

    Also, in the settings in Minecraft itself, make sure to check who is allowed in your Multiplayer Games. Is it set to just Friends, or friends of friends?

    How do you type in the code in

    If you create a world in Minecraft you could choose on the multiplayer part if it should be open, just Friends or disable it. You don´t need a code to do that...

    Joining friends worlds in Minecraft

    Did it work before with that particular friend?

    Has your friend set up the world to allow multiplayer?

    On what device is your friend playing? PC, Xbox, something else? What version is that Minecraft game of your friend?

    Friends can’t join minecraft world

    Hello Nugnug. This issue has happened to me in the past and there are many different reasons that this could happen.

    1. One or multiple of your friends are in the Minecraft beta program which means that they will not be able to join your worlds because they are in a "future" update compared to you. Your friends must leave the beta program, uninstall and reinstall the game
    in order for you to play with your friends.

    2. Your multiplayer settings might be on invite only. Changing it to "friends only" or "friends of friends" in the Minecraft settings will correct this problem.

    3. Your Xbox LIVE settings are keeping you from playing with your friends. Changing your privacy settings for communications and multiplayer will fix the problem.

    Hope this helps.

    So... it appears you're having problems connecting to your friends worlds in Minecraft for Windows 10.

    I would have them check their in-game settings in Minecraft under the main menu there, and make sure that Online play is enabled. Sometimes this is switched to being disabled and therefore they cannot join any online games and friends cannot join their game
    either. Both you and your friends should check in Minecraft settings and make sure that Online play is enabled and friends are allowed to join. Then you can select which permissions you would like to enable for your friends when they join your world after
    that.
