    I log into my parent account but am unable to change the birthdate on the member, which is actually me. Microsoft changed my birthdate to a child. I have contacted microsoft several times and they cannot figure out what is wrong. Can anyone help?

    broken "family member needs to sign in"

    Parental controls stopped working. Family.Microsoft.com has alert: "Your family member needs to sign in to their Windows 10 device AngLaptop2014 for family features to work.

    But the "how to fix this" says

    • Select Accounts > Family & other people
    • Under Your family, select your family member, then select Allow
    • Have your family member sign in with their Microsoft account if asked to
    And the steps don't apply. The account is already allowed, and there is no option to change that.

    Now what???

  3. How do I change the primary alias of a family member's account?

    How do I change the primary alias of a family member's account? It says "your organization's policy prevent you from changing your primary alias."

    When I go to the organizer's account, I can't see where I can change the policy. The birthdate on the family member's account is correct and the family member is over 18 years of age.

    Error while changing my son's birthdate to be a child account: "Your birthdate cannot be updated at this time"

    My son's account was set up as a standard Microsoft adult account. When I try to change his birthdate to be a child, I get this error:

    Your birthdate cannot be updated at this time.

    • He is already listed as in my family and shows in my Family list as an adult
    • I am not allowed to manage his account from my own account (because he's listed as an adult)
    • I have his login
    • While logged into his account, I am given the option to change his birthdate, but it doesn't work.
    • When I try to change the birthdate from within his account, I am given a prompt that I will be charged $0.50 to change his account into a child account.
    • I agree to the $0.50 charge.
    • Instead of updating his birthdate or asking for CC info, I get that error: Your birthdate cannot be updated at this time.
    • If I change his country to Canada, I can update the birthdate, but the account still isn't a child account (which is my entire goal)
    • If I try to change his country back to USA while keeping the correct birthdate, I get that same error above saying the birthdate cannot be updated at this time (even though I'm changing the country; not the birthdate).

    Please help. I just want my son's account listed as a child account so I can manage his account and content restrictions. I have three children in my Family account. Two of which are showing as adults but are children.

    How do I update my child's birthdate to convert his standard account into a child account?
