    Not able to change my Xbox Live account "privacy and online safety" settings


    Since April, I've been trying to change the privacy and online safety setting on my xbox live account that lets me add friends.

    I do not have an xbox, but I do have some PC games I would like to play with my friends.

    The problem is that there is currently no way to change your account's settings from anywhere but console.

    I've been trying to follow this article that states there's a way to change these settings from xbox.com:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...ety-and-privacy-settings-for-parents-and-kids

    While following the instructions in the article I've realized that I'm not able to access my xbox settings through the website. Every time I tried clicking on the "Xbox settings" button from my profile drop down menu it kept sending me to
    this page:

    https://beta.support.xbox.com/help/...e-safety/manage-app-privacy-settings-xbox-one

    After 2 months of trying to access my account settings - and the crucially system breaking issue not being fixed - I decided to look around the internet and see if I am the only one experiencing this problem. And than I found this post:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...settings/7f6b1de6-b1dd-47e4-a802-f103b44836ad

    This post is from a year ago! This person had the exact same problem as me, more than 40 people noted that they are experiencing the same problem, and the issue is still not resolved a year later!

    So I decided to repost this issue, just so it would get the attention it deserves.

    If any more information is needed to try and resolve this issue, please tell me! Do not ignore or forget this post after 1 automated response.

    I will be checking this post frequently to see if there are any questions that I could answer.

    Thank you in advance,

    Noam.

    :)
