    Unable to change settings for my account


    Every time I go to "My Account" on the site it just goes to the "Uh oh that shouldn't have happened" screen. I wouldn't be bothered normally, but it's been a year and my security requirements for going on another xbox or logging
    in are way too harsh. I have to get an email and a text before I can continue and it's just a hassle.

    :)

    Hey there Silver! If you created your account before you were 18, then you are on a Child Account. Even though you are over 18 now, you'd need to promote your account to an adult. First you'd need to have the Parent Account approve the Terms though, and
    then you will be able to update your account. Let us know if you have any trouble with this, thanks!

    Hey Silver. I would go to account.live.com and verify that your age is correct.

    As for the language, check the
    Region change support page
    , and make sure your region settings are correct.

    Let us know if you need any more help!

    Hey again! I understand that you may have had access to other features or settings, but this Terms of Use prompt must be accepted by the Parent Account if you are on a Child Account; there is no way to get around this. I'm sorry for the extra work, but the
    Parent Account needs to sign in to accept the new Terms. Please let us know if you have any trouble with that, thanks!

    unable to change account settings

    I confirmed my age at account.live.com Birth date: March 22, 1991

    I got some kind "Updated Terms of Use" and I accepted and after that I entered my e-mail and password and got:

    Parental Approval Required

    That's not the parent associated with your account. The parent listed on your account will need to sign in with their Microsoft account email.

    Is here some kind bug in this or what?
