    Family account is bugged - how do I fix this very annoying issue ?


    My 3 children are set up on a shared laptop and myself as well.

    2 of the children are users in a family that I set up under the Microsoftset up.

    I have also set up the 3rd child and when I log in as himself, it tells me it is already belonging to my family.

    When I log in as myself, he is not there !

    I cannot seem to be able to remove him when logged under himself and I cannot access him when logged under myself.

    Basically I cannot control his screen time and he has unlimited access, how can I fix this problem ?


    Thanks

    :)

    Family Safety issues

    Hi,

    Configuration settings may be the possible cause why you're experiencing issues with Family when searching for the device. To assist you better, we'd like to clarify few things:

    • When you mention 2 devices on your sons account, do you want to use two devices but using one account?
    • Could you provide us a screen shot of family list devices?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you check and follow the steps in this articles below on how to set up your Family:


    Keep us posted if you need additional help.
