  1. separating accounts


    I was so good in creating accounts for each member of my family on the xbox1 when I purchased a few years back, making mine the master control,(payments, authorizing games etc) My eldest usurped my account. Is there a best method to transfer his fortnite
    account from my user to his or move that control in some way without disrupting the games he has saved on my account?

    Thank you in advance. minimal trolling please.

    :)

    separating accounts

    Hi Stephen,

    In response to changing the emails. Be very careful as this will be a process. As drifter stated this can work. However, If any email that you change is a Microsoft email such as Hotmail, outlook, live, or MSN.
    They can not be deleted from the account totally if you use them for anything. If they are removed from the account totally in essence it deletes the email. So for example, if you use a Hotmail for work and remove it, that email you can no
    longer use for work. Leave the Microsoft email on the account as a secondary email.

    Hi Stephen,

    Thanks for coming to the forums. Unfortunately, there is no way to move content from one account to another. In this case you could either let him keep using that account, or play on his account. Then he would be where he left off on his own account.

    separating accounts

    you cannot transfer games/DLC or save from one account to another but you can change the account email address. It can be a multi-step process however I do not know that you can make an account a child account once validated as an adult, if that's what
    you want to do.

    Add an email address verify it works

    update primary email address, make sure it works

    Remove old email address.
