    Changed my dob by mistake, unable to edit it back


    HiI had an adult account. I was going to add my child to an old laptop, however I mistakenly changed all of my own details to his. I have been able to change back the name etc but as he is under the age of 13 and I set the date of birth for the account to his I cannot now edit this back to my actual date of birth. As this is now a 'child' account that never had consent to be created, being added to a family domain by by husband does not allow him to edit my details as he did not provide consent to initially create the account. Is there a way in which I can edit my dob back to what it should be

    :)

    Thanks all.

    Hi Mark, I think your hitting on my problem. I am trying to correct my dob in my microsoft account. I accessed this from a google search. For some reason my dob is set as 2017 and therefore has a child status. I was born in 69 and Im now unable to download
    software updates for itunes and the like on to my desktop unless a I correct my dob. I will try the links you have suggested.

    Changing child's DOB but no option to do so

    Hi,

    I'm trying to change my son's DOB on Microsoft. All Microsoft instructions say to log in to my adult account, select him in Family and select 'Manage My child's profile info' and then choose 'Edit this
    child's personal info'

    Seems straightforward but I don't get offered the 'Edit this child's personal info' option on the 'Manage my child's profile info page'.

    All it has is a statement saying some countries have different steps to regulate what children can do online.

    And I can't change the DOB from my son's account via the 'personal info' section.

    Any suggestions welcome as I've spent hours looking into this!

    Thanks
