    Parental Controls: Allow LAN games, but not online?


    I've been trying to get multiplayer Minecraft working in my house all morning. I've got two PCs and an Xbox setup for my kids to play. We have a game going on one of the PCs, logged in as a kids account. On both the other PC and the Xbox, when I'm logged in as my adult account, I can see the LAN game and join it. But as either of the kids accounts, the LAN game doesn't show up at all.

    After experimenting with the Xbox family privacy controls for a long time (https://account.xbox.com/en-us/settings) it seems like enabling one Xbox setting, "You can join multiplayer games" allows the account to see the LAN game and join it, but it also unlocks all of the online Minecraft servers/realms. So that one setting is a global setting for both local, LAN games, _and_ online games. That can't be true, right? Am I missing something? There must be a way to allow local multiplayer and just restrict online...

    :)

    I'm afraid I have no idea why that is to be honest

    Parental Controls: Allow LAN games, but not online?

    Thanks! I find that really surprising... it makes me wonder whether that setting is even supposed to apply to local multiplayer, and its Minecraft that incorrectly applied it to local games. It's typically only online access that parents need to worry about, and rarely is there ever a concern for preventing multiplayer between people in the same house? Or maybe I'm not creative enough to imagine that scenario :)

    Hello, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    To my knowledge, there isn't a way to allows LAN multiplayer and restrict online access. It's just the one setting for all Multiplayer on child accounts.

    Your parent would need to fix this by allowing mature content and games. Tell them to enable the setting in parental controls.

    Yes, you can as long as the parental controls on the console allow you to play those types of games.
