    How to password protect your Xbox LIVE profile

    Xbox LIVE password overview

    It is possible to download your Xbox LIVE profile to several different consoles. You may need to do this if you have more than one Xbox 360 console, or you want to play games at a friend's house. In such a situation, you may want to password protect your Xbox LIVE account so that no one else can sign in using your profile.

    Set the console to remember your password

    Once you have downloaded your Xbox LIVE profile to a console, you will be asked if you want the console to remember your password. The Remember Password option is usually off by default. This means that you will be asked for your Microsoft account password every time you sign into Xbox LIVE.

    If you don't want to be asked for your Microsoft account password every time you sign into Xbox LIVE, select the Remember Password option.

    Change the password protection on your profile

    You are required to set the Remember Password option after you download your Xbox LIVE profile. However, you can change the password protection on your Xbox LIVE profile any time.

    If you don't need a password to sign in:

    Sign into your Xbox LIVE profile. After you have entered your Microsoft account password, select the Remember Password option.

    If you choose the Remember Password option, you will not be asked for your Microsoft account password the next time you sign into your Xbox LIVE profile.

    If you need a password to sign in:

    You can restrict access to your Xbox LIVE profile on any console using your Microsoft account password.

    Steps to follow

    1) Sign in using your Xbox LIVE gamertag.

    2) Under Settings, select Account and then Account Security

    3) Choose the option for Password at Sign In.

    4) Select Require Password Here

    You will be asked for your Microsoft account password the next time you sign into your Xbox LIVE profile.

    How to password protect your Xbox LIVE profile remotely

    If you downloaded your Xbox LIVE profile to another console and it is not password protected, or someone has compromised your password, you can change the password from a remote location so that no one else can access your profile.

    Change your Microsoft account

    1) Sign into accounts.live.com using your Microsoft account.

    2) Go to Account Information and, next to Password, click Change.

    You can also use your console to change your Microsoft account password.

    Note: If the Xbox LIVE profile you downloaded does not require a password to sign in (You selected the Remember Password option), you will not be able to restrict someone from signing into your Xbox profile even if you change your Microsoft account password.

    You can remove your Microsoft account password so that other people cannot access your Xbox profile on other consoles. This will ensure that a password is required before signing into your Xbox profile.

    Remotely set a profile password from a computer:

    1) Sign into your Xbox LIVE account.

    2) Under Settings, select Account, and then Account Security

    3) Choose the option for Password at Sign In.

    4) Select On All Other Consoles.

    Once you have done this, a password will be required to sign into your Xbox LIVE profile on all other consoles.

    I'm not sure what happened here.

    The way me and my friend did it as to not worry about passwords is to bring up your password change settings on phone or PC first. Then go to home console, enter his gamer tag and enter password. As soon as it logs his in, have friend apply his new password on phone or PC that you had setup first. Log friend account out. Log you back in. Have friend do same on his. As long as you change your password and as long as your account gets logged out of other console, your account cant be accessed without giving new password.

    Yes the password is the same as on Xbox its the same email and password you use for that account if you still get problems best to ring Microsoft and recover your password.

    Unfortunately, there is not. You would need to reset it that way.

    Hello,

    You will need to follow some very specific instructions below to go to the customer support Windows Live account recovery:

    1. Click on this link.

    2. Click on the third option: I Think Someone Else is using my Windows Live ID.

    3. Select Reset your Password option .

    4. Enter the Windows Live account you are trying to recover.

    5. Enter the characters you see on the picture, and then tick on Next.

    6. Click on Customer Support.

    7. When a highlighted Customer support phrase appears, click on it.

    8. Re-enter the Windows Live account you are trying to recover.

    9. Enter your alternate email address. ( Active email address that you have access to even if it's not associated with the account )

    10. Click on Continue.

    11. Validate your identity by providing as much information as you can on the Recover your Windows Live account page then click on Continue to submit.

    12. A page that says Your information has been submitted will appear, (just wait for the result of the account recovery request on your alternate email address)

    Note: To pass the validation process, you will need to provide as much precise information as possible. The more accurate your information is, the more likely you are to pass validation.

    This will essentially move your non working WLID to the new one that you'd like to be contacted on. This does require that you follow the instructions up top and fill in as much information as you can in the form that is sent to your alternate
    e-mail.
