    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.

    How to change child account to adult

    Hi Brookelynn,

    Your Xbox Live account age will be based from the Date of Birth that you entered when you created your Xbox Live profile online. Once the account reaches the age of 18 years old, it will automatically change to adult.

    If you accidentally set up an incorrect Date of Birth on the account, you have to wait for the account to become an adult or create a new account with the correct Date of Birth. However, if your account shows the correct Date of Birth and the system recognizes
    it as child account, you can promote the child account to adult by adding a payment instrument and a billing information to your Microsoft Account. You can go to this

    link
    and follow the steps to add a payment instrument to your account.

    You may find the instructions to this question by following the links below:


    Keep us updated with the results after performing the suggested solutions above.
