    You can create a passkey.

    A passkey helps to prevent unapproved charges. You can choose to require a passkey to make any purchase on Xbox Live. Setting a passkey helps prevent children from making unapproved purchases.

    How to create your passkey

    1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    2. Select System > Settings > Account.
    3. Select Sign-in, security & passkey.
    4. Select Create my passkey.
    5. Enter a 6-digit passkey, and then re-enter the passkey to confirm.
    Your passkey has now been set.

    If you try entering the passkey 3 times it will then ask you for your MS account log in. As it wouldn't be your account (I assume) you might not be able to use this method.

    You should just be able to add your own account and remove the account that has the passkey on the console.

    Remove account from the console

    1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide and go to System.
    2. Select Settings > Account.
    3. Select Remove accounts.
    4. Select the account, and then confirm removal.
    Re-add your account to the console

    1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    2. Select Sign in.
    3. Select Add & manage.
    4. Select Add new.
    5. Enter your Microsoft account email address and password.
    6. Follow the instructions on the following screens to finish personalizing your settings.

    To Answer your question when you set the passkey yes there is controller showing the options.

    Hi there!

    I put a passkey on my friend's Xbox, but we have parted on uneasy terms and I'd like to change the Passkey. However, I don't want to have to figure out a way to get on the console, so is there any way to reset or change my passkey remotely?
    Hi there,

    It's best to create a new thread for your issue so you can get more personalized assistance.

    With regards to your question, as a passkey can only be created/changed while on a console, if you do not want someone to be able to access your account on a console who may have access to the account, you will want to change your account password. That
    password will need to be entered the next time the account is accessed on the console.

    Steps on how to change it can be found here:

    For extra account security, you can add two-step verification to your account. Additional information can be found
