    How do I reset a childs account password who is a part of the family account


    Created an account using my credit card for my child. but I did not note the password. However when I try to reset the password there is only one option to fill a form. The form includes a bunch of services which my child never used. So it is failing with not - enough - info to reset the password.

    Please advise.

    :)

    How to reset child account password in family safety on win. 10 ?

    Hello Earl,



    If you are logged in using an Administrator Account and you have set up the child accounts using the same account, then you should be able to change their passwords.



    You can follow these steps:



    • Press Windows key + X and select Control Panel.
    • Click on Family Safety and select the child account.
    • On the left navigation pane, select Change Password.
    • Follow the prompted instructions and check if the password is changed.


    Let us know how it goes.

    Reset childs family account password by parent

    Hello,

    I created an account for my child and added to my family.

    After granted access to a specific device and tried to log on with this account, we realised that we did not remember the password. We never signed in to microsoft account and when I tried to reset the password I realised that I could not. Microsoft asked
    for things like previous passwords and contacts for an account that never logged in !!!

    Am I missing something or a parent should have the ability to reset a small childs password easily?

    Whare are all these bigs things that Microsoft claims to ease family access and children monitoring, when a parent cannot reset a password?

    I spent hours trying to gain access for my child to its account and I end up with a message to wait for 24 hours.

    This is not a national security issue. It is a simple child account. I am giving up. I expected from Microsoft to make life easier but it is making it harder and more complicated.

    How to reset child account password in family safety on win. 10 ?

    I'm also having issues with this.

    There is NO OPTION to change the password, either in Windows 10 or in the family management area of the online account preferences. My son is disabled, and has issues with memory, but proudly remembered his password until recently, when he changed it. He's
    just turned 7 years old. Why am I not permitted to clearly manage the account?

    When I go to Settings -> Account -> Family & Other People there are no options.

    The Family Safety control panel does not exist on my computer.

    The Microsoft account management feature connected to my son's email address (which we have set up with his school to manage schoolwork this year) does not have any obvious option to reset the password.

    So... again, how do we do this?
