    Move Device to family member


    Hi, I want to move my xbox one and this includes the xbox live account and gamertag to a family member that is with my microsoft account and I can not figure out a way to do it. I do not want to create an all new microsoft account with a different email
    but just move it to an already existing microsoft account.

    :)

    The Terms of Service say that you can't give away or share a Microsoft account. They will have to create their own account.

    While you can transfer the console to another user, the
    Microsoft Services Agreement
    specifically prohibits the transfer of Microsoft accounts to others.

    Hello ALamb1!

    Thanks for reaching out to Xbox forums support.

    Unfortunately, I do not believe what you are trying to do is possible.

    The only way for the family member to take over your Microsoft account / Gamertag / Xbox profile

    would be for you just to give him your Microsoft Email and password to the account which we do not recommend as it would violate the
    Microsoft Services Agreement.

    The email that created the account will always be associated with the account.

    You can change the email address that you use to sign into the Microsoft account and make the new one the primary.

    Click on the link below:

    How to change the email address associated with your Microsoft account

    Once you've done that, you can remove the previous (original) email from the account.

    Let us know of that helps!

    Move Xbox One to Family Device

    Hi Barton,

    Thanks for keeping us updated on your question. Devices are ones that you log into. Has your child logged in on his account on the Xbox? You manage all permissions through your profile, by selecting the child in family. If the device doesn't show, make sure
    they log on the console. You can also try registering the console under the child account. As an example,

    screen time set up
    is all done through your profile.

    Hope this helps.

    Brad
