  1. online account settings


    I was trying to join a Minecraft realm online and it kept telling me that I cannot play online multiplayer because of how my Microsoft Account is set up. It told me to go to aka.ms/accountsettings, but that website doesn't exist. Then I kept trying to
    get to my account settings other ways but it kept sending me to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...ge-childs-xbox-privacy-online-safety-settings.
    It says only adults can change account settings, but my account is an adult account. Please help.

    :)

    I was trying to join a Minecraft realm online and it kept telling me that I cannot play online multiplayer because of how my Microsoft Account is set up. It told me to go to aka.ms/accountsettings, but that website doesn't exist. Then I kept trying
    to get to my account settings other ways but it kept sending me to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...ge-childs-xbox-privacy-online-safety-settings.

    You may want to see if these steps work:

    "The fastest way to change your child’s privacy and settings for Xbox is to do it online. Only Microsoft family adults can do this. Here’s how:

    • Go to account.xbox.com and sign in with an adult's Microsoft account. Next, choose Profile > Privacy
      Settings
      . Follow the instructions to verify your identity.
    • Next, select your child's gamertag.
    • Choose Xbox One/Windows 10 Online Safety, adjust the settings, then select Submit.
      Do the same for Privacy and Xbox 360 Online Safety.
    • To update the changes you’ve just made in all the devices your child uses to play Xbox, have your child sign out of each device, and then sign back in. "

    Parental control

    Hi there,

    if your account is considered a Child account, this is based on the Birth date on the Microsoft account then it is required to have a Parental account and not specifically if the account is part of a family. That parental account can set certain privacy
    and online safety settings.

    To change the online safety and privacy settings the parental account can sign in at
    http://account.xbox.com/settings and change the settings for any child account connected.

    If the account itself is a adult account then the settings can be set for the account via that same link.

    Aution House Not working

    Hi there,

    the auction house can be limited by some Privacy and online settings.

    The privacy/online settings need to allow user created content, you can find the setting at
    http://account.xbox.com/settings

    If your account is a child account, a parental account needs to set this setting for your account.

    Let us know the results
