    Trying to allow my child to add friends on minecraft


    My child wants to add friends in minecraft but is getting an error that says he cannot because of the way his account is set up. I've tried removing all restrictions but nothing has worked.

    :)

    Trying to allow my child to add friends on minecraft

    Rather annoyingly, this thread (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...iends-on/99d48ff8-c222-49af-a7fb-a2501ca7315f)
    asks this question, thousands of people have the same problem, I've found the answer but the thread is closed so I cannot post the answer there! Thanks, Micro$oft!

    This page has the answer:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...ge-childs-xbox-privacy-online-safety-settings

    Basically, you have to sign in to account.xbox.com with the adult account, then go to Profile > Privacy Settings, then click the game name of your child, There are then lots of options.

    Select the Xbox One/Windows 10 Online Safety tab

    At the bottom, change Add Friends to Allow and click Submit.

    At this point, Minecraft still will not allow you to add friends. You have to actually sign out of Microsoft and sign back in again. It's no good just closing Minecraft and opening again!

    In Minecraft, go back to the main screen, then click Profile.

    Click the Cog wheel, to go to User Profile and Settings.

    Click Sign out of your Microsoft Account.

    Click Sign Out.

    Then click Sign in for Free!

    Click Save to Microsoft Account (if you want, probably better than Leave on Device)

    It should then take you to the Microsoft sign-in screen. If it doesn't, try leaving Minecraft and starting it again.

    Sign in, then click Let's Play!

    Hopefully, you'll now be able to add friends.

    I suggest double checking the restrictions and after that doing a hard reboot by holding the xbox power button for 10 seconds.

    Child's gamertag missing from parents Privacy & online safety settings

    I'm having the same problem. My kids set up xbox accounts on their iPads and want to play minecraft together. I've spent ages trying to allow them to connect as friends and go into the family settings under my account and click allow friends and click save,
    but every time I log back in, it has not saved and still has the ability to add friends blocked. I would really appreciate advice how to give my kids permission to be friends. thanks
    Same issue, terrible experience trying to accept an invite for a Minecraft realm. Still not solved and "Xbox 360 Online Safety" "Accept Friend Requests" settings remains "blocked" despite clicking "allowed" and saving many many many times.
