    Hello My problem is that I don't come from the family group because the account that manages the group no longer gives access, the password can also not be reset because the email no longer exists

  2. Family Organizer Leaving Family Group

    Hello Lee Wilfert,

    Glad to see you in Microsoft Community.

    • If Mother was the administrator of the Family Group, you can exit the Family Group directly, and Mother will automatically become the Family Group organizer.

      If you want to stay in the Family Group, you need to rejoin, either as an administrator or as a regular Family Group member.

      Visit Getting started with Microsoft Family Safety for more details.
    • If Mother was already a member of the Family Group, you need to remove her from the Family Group, then add it again, and need to select "Administrator" when selecting the role.
    Meanwhile, you can dissolve the Family Group, and then let the new organizer send an invitation to re-establish the Family Group. Visit Leave family group or remove members (microsoft.com) for more details.

    If anything is unclear, please do not hesitate to let me know.



    Best Regards,

  3. Delete family group:

    Dear Jason Mock1

    Thank you for posting in the Microsoft community.

    In all honesty, we would suggest that the fastest solution for you would be to re-register for a Microsoft account and then join your daughter's family group. That way you can get up and running with MICROSOFT365 as soon as possible.

    Back to the family group issue, if you are the organizer of another family group, it would be a good idea to notify the other members of the group that the group needs to be disbanded, and then delete the other members in turn from the main family account screen. Finally, dissolve the family group.

    If you are a member of a family, but not the organizer, you can leave the family group if you are an adult account, or if you are a minor, you will need to be removed from the family group by your organizer.

    So, frankly speaking the family group feature is not perfect at the moment and sometimes the above steps may not be possible due to server logic. You may want to sign up for a new Microsoft account and wait until the family group feature is stabilized before joining your daughter's family group with your original account.

    We hope the above information helps you

    Best Wish

    How do I get out of the family group?

    Last member (Adult) unable to leave Family group

    Why not set up an admin account with documented password, add it to the family group? Then you can take your account out, and still have (or leave) an admin/family group access account available. Just a thought/suggestion...
    HTH,
