    Require passkey to switch users


    Hello, this is a question I hoped has a solution, but I was unable to find it.

    I have some games purchased on Xbox Series; not all of them are kids-rated.

    But it appears that I must sign in for kids to play.

    So, whenever screen time ends, or they want to access other games - they may easily switch users as I am signed in, and gain full access.

    Is there a way to enforce passkey entry to
    switch user, which is already signed in but inactive?

    Thanks.

    :)

    Have to enter the WPA2 Password every time - after selecting a different Wi-fi Service

    It is by design to ask for your WPA2 password/passkey after connecting successfully to another Network , then switching back to your previous Networks. It's like refreshing the Network, which does require the WPA passkey once again. I'd recommend changing
    your passkey to something tough, yet you will definitely remember instead of having to type in the very long passkey that is defaulted from the ISP.

    second xbox for family

    what you can do so that they can both play is set 1 Xbox as your Home, then on the other have it to auto sign you in but require a passkey for purchases then switch accounts to the child that is going to play on that console.

    this will let them both play at the same time without having to get a second copy of the games or subscriptions

    How to require a passkey for purchases

    1. Press the Xbox button  to open the guide.
    2. Select System > Settings > Account.
    3. Select Sign-in, security & passkey.
    4. Select Change my sign-in & security preferences.
    5. Scroll right and select Customize.
    6. Scroll right and select Ask for my passkey to make purchases.

    A passkey is now required to make purchases on your account. To turn this feature off, repeat these steps and select Passkey not required.

    Xbox One Lock

    Hi Cruz! I'm sorry to say there isn't a way to password protect the entire xbox, it will automaticall go to the dashboard at startup, allowing users to attach their own profiles or play offline as a guest. You CAN set a passkey to prevent your own account
    from being signed in and used, and I'll provide those links for you, but I don't suspect that's exactly what you want. Sorry about that!

    Create a passkey:
    support.xbox.com/.../create-xbox-one-passkey


    Require a passkey for purchases:
    support.xbox.com/.../passkey-purchases
    (This is the same location where you can set your sign-in preferences to require the passkey.)

    Saving Password

    Is your son using his own account or is he using your account?

    Here is how you would do it:

    1. Go into settings.

    2. Under the account tab go to sign in security and passkey.

    3. Choose which option you want there should be a drop down menu with the following choices and here is what each choice means.

    • Make it fast, make it magic: Automatic sign-in with no password or passkey required.
    • No barriers: No password or passkey required to sign in, change settings, or make purchases.
    • Check that it's me: A passkey is required to sign in.
    • Ask for my passkey: A passkey is required to sign in, change settings, or make purchases.
    • Lock it down: Your Microsoft account password is required for almost everything.
    • Customize: Select this option to customize which actions require a password or passkey.

    Signing in every time you play

    hi,you need to create a passkey so instead of using your account password you log your account with the passkey.

    the passkey its also required to authorize purchases.
