    Changing an adult account into a child account


    I know that this has been asked before, but has there been any updates on this? When we got my child the Xbox, we set set it up with my account. Now I would like to set up the account or add him as a child, to be able to use parent controls. I do not want him to lose his achievements and skins he has so far. Is this possible?

    :)

    Changing a child account to an adult account

    Hello David,

    Once your son reaches 18 years old, the system will automatically change his profile to adult. If it's still showing as a child account even he already reached 18 years old, we recommend checking the article about
    How do I change the birthdate on a Microsoft account? and then follow the steps underI'm a parent, trying to change my child's birthdate on this
    link. If the issue persists, we suggest taking the two options from the article about
    I’m an adult, but my account thinks I’m a child.

    Once you're done, let us know the result.

    Change child account to an Adult account

    Hi,

    For most people, in most regions

    Sign in to Your info on the Microsoft account website.

    Select Edit your personal info.

    Change your birthdate, and select Save.

    For child accounts, in some regions

    If the birthdate 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.

    I'm a parent, trying to change my child's birthdate

    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.

    I’m an adult, but my account thinks I’m a child

    To change your own account from a child account to a full account, you need to prove that you're an adult. You have two options:

    Kind Regards,
