    Security bug after latest update - passcode set but not required to purchase!!!


    After the latest Xbox One update, I have changed my security settings to allow sign-in with Kinect, but a passcode needs to be entered to change settings or when making a purchase, or so I thought.

    This morning I signed in to my Xbox One, went to the store and clicked to purchase a copy of 'Watchdogs'. It took me straight to the payment confirmation page, which I clicked and installation began. No passcode required!!!! This is now less secure than
    it was previously. I went back to the settings (which ironically needed me to input my passcode) and checked that I had indeed asked for a passcode to be required to make a purchase - I had.

    I have a friend who has had two Xbox 360's stolen from him in the past and his account abused. Because of this my 360's have always had a passcode to sign-in and I'm now finding the Xbox One to be less secure. I don't want $100's racked-up on my account
    without my permission.

    :)

  2. Family Passcode

    I'm trying to remove the family passcode that was set a long time ago by my dad. He forgot both the security question and the actual passcode. Is there any other way to remove it? My Xbox 360 has the latest updates I think, and all the tricks that I have
    tried from previous years don't work.

    Parent wants to sue Microsoft over $4,500 Xbox bill

    You can usually just file a purchase dispute with the credit card company in this situation.

    However, just like any online Eco system, such as Sony, Apple, or Microsoft, you can set it to require a passcode for purchases. I have seen many articles with this happening with iOS or Android in app purchases. It's a mistake on the parents part, not microsofts.

    Removing Passcode

    That depends, are you referring to the Xbox LIVE passcode (to sign in to the account) or the Parental Passcode (download content, change settings)? The LIVE passcode can simply be reset by recovering your account, or going into the menu and disabling it
    (requires the passcode). The Parental passcode will not be affected by recovering, and can only be disabled by knowing the code or answering the security question.

    Delete Everywhere

    Sadly, no passcode requirement. I hope there is some kind of security if the save has to be deleted 'everywhere'.

    XBOX LIVE PASSCODE.

    Are you referring to the LIVE passcode, or the Family Settings passcode? The Family Settings code will not be reset by a recover. If you forgot this passcode you can try answering the security question or calling phone support.
