    What is the best way to setup accounts, purchases, allowing others to play on my console with their account?

    I want to be the only one who has access to settings, purchases, subscriptions, etc. but yet allow others to play on my console also with their accounts.

    I have had some problems with unauthorized purchases showing up on my account through apparently accidentally hitting buttons by my kids.

    What is the best way to setup accounts, purchases, allowing others to play on my console with their account?

    If someone signs in with their account information on your console they have access to everything they have purchased its that simple. FYI kids don't accidentally hit buttons and there is a confirmation after choosing to purchase an item. Make sure your
    kids are on a "child account" and you can restrict things they can do.

    You may want to just remove any persistent payment information; this means youj will have to enter it every time you make a purchase though.

    Definition of a Microsoft child account

    How a child account is defined

    At Microsoft, a child account is defined as any Microsoft account that’s affiliated with an adult Microsoft account when the age of the child or teen is less than the age of majority for his or her country. When this is the case, the child must be linked
    to an adult’s Microsoft account in order to participate in the Xbox Live service.

    When it comes to managing a child’s privacy and online safety, Xbox One breaks the definition of “children” into three categories:

    • Young child: Anyone under the age of 8
    • Child: Ages 8 through 12
    • Teen: Ages 13 through 17 (or 19 in South Korea).

    Hey there Tech thanks for taking the time to bring these questions to us.

    We apologize for the confusion this has caused but rest assured we are here to help. We will be breaking down these inquiries into several answers to be as clear as possible.

    First things first, the way to share the console would be to set it up as the
    Home console
    , this will allow other people to add their account to the console. Check out our Home console page for more information.

    Second, check out our
    Prevent unauthorized purchases by children on Xbox One page
    to see how to prevent unauthorized purchases being made.

    What should be done to prevent the charges in the future is
    setting up a passkey
    and select either ask for my passkey or lock it down permissions.

    Check it out and let us know if we can further assist in this or any other issues!

    Help with Black Ops 2 map packs - can i play on my other console in bedroom?

    When you purchase content it's tied to the gamertag that purchased it as well as the console it was purchased on. The console license is what allows all other profiles on a console to access the downloaded content. Only the account that purchased the content
    can play it on any other console. So since the content was not purchased on your son's account he would not be able to play it on a different console.

    Pre loaded game won't play

    Hey andrebosseau,

    If you those games were purchased via your son's account, he would have to set the console you have as the "Home" console. This allows him to share gold as well as any games he purchased with other users on the console.

    More info on home Xbox settings: https://support.xbox.com/en-US/games/game-setup/my-home-xbox

    Best,
