    Changing a Microsoft account from an (incorrectly entered) adult birthdate to the correct child's birthdate

    The links provided in the above response pertain to an account which is already setup as a child. That is not my situation.

    My issue is going from an ADULT account to a CHILD account. Currently, the account is setup (incorrectly) as an adult account. I would like to update the birthdate to reflect that this is a child account.

    This is an easy scenario to test:

    • Setup a new Microsoft account with a birthdate that makes you an adult.
    • Log off and then log back in
    • Go to your profile and attempt to change the birth date to make you a child.
    • The system will prevent you from making this change.
    Any suggestions?

    change my child microsoft accnt

    Need help changing DOB on child account

    Hi Robert,

    If the birth date on a Microsoft account says that it belongs to a child, there are different steps to take in regions such as the United States of America and the Republic of Korea, and other regions that regulate what children can do online. Here is what
    to do when you are a parent trying to change your child's birth date:

    • Using the parent's Microsoft account, sign in to your
      Family
      page on the Microsoft account website.
    • Select Manage my child's profile info.
    • For the child’s account that you want to change, select Edit this child's personal info and then follow the instructions.

    For additional help, you may find the instructions to this question by following the links below:


    In the meantime, try removing the account from the family list, then add them back as an adult. Refer to this
    link on how to remove members from Microsoft Family.

    Let us know if you need further help.
