  1. How do I stop the Microsoft family features pop-up spam?


    Hey so I've had this problem and somehow solved it before, but a week or two ago the pop-ups started appearing on both my devices again like the plague and won't go away, I read a few other questions about this issue and tried completely removing myself from the family I was in but that didn't help, my devices still show me in the family even though when I go to the Microsoft family website it shows that I am not in a family.

    Basically I just want a way to remove the spam pop-ups because they are a massive annoyance.

    Thanks for any replies, here's a pic of the pop-up:

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    It is required to Turn OFF Family settings in your Windows PC to stop the Microsoft Family Features pop up.

    You may refer this article on how to
    remove the members from the Microsoft Family, restart the device and check if you are getting the pop up again.

    Hope it helps.
