  1. How To Change Adult Account to Child Account - Need To Set Restrictions


    Right this is now stressing us out


    I have had my own Microsoft Account for years. However when we got our son his XBOX One we used my Microsoft Account which of course is the Adult Account to set him up on his new XBOX One and away he went. Now he is getting older he is using the XBOX for more than gaming such as YouTube. All he watches on that channel is YouTubers who are a bad influence...sexual references, pranksters, swearing etc, plus also time limits


    So is it possible that the Adult Account can be changed to a child Account and also bearing in mind he has all his Achievements, Game Saves and other stuff from his XBOX One on my Adult Account and do not want to lose these


    It is ridiculous how you cannot put restrictions/blocks for Apps such as YouTube via the Adult Account


    Seen a couple of threads HERE and HERE but not sure whether to try anything without deleting any Achievements, Game Saves


    Thanks for any help

    :)

    • Press Windows key + I to open Settings.

    Changing Adult Account to Child Account

    Hi there,

    I'm stuck trying to change my childs account from Adult to Child. I've created my account as an adult and included it in Family. I've updated the birth date in my son's account as well but it still says its an Adult account. My son's account is connecting
    all the devices as well. I want to restrict his ability to buy whatever he wants online. The visa card is connected to his account and has a subscription connected to it.

  4. How To Change Adult Account to Child Account - Need To Set Restrictions

    Does a child account automatically become an adult account?


    How does a child account become a normal adult account? Is this something that happens automatically at a certain age? Or do I as head family account holder have to initiate something?

    The reason I ask is because trying to use Edge on a child account is proving tiresome. Despite deleting my son's child account and re-creating it we are launching Edge and it is taking from anywhere between 10 seconds to a minute to become usable. When I say useable I mean the ability to surf, the actual browser is launched and you can go into settings etc BUT no web pages will load despite even typing web addresses in. It's as if Edge is waiting for MS server side to give it some kind of approval before it will allow any web activity. Once it's up and running it's fine but closing the browser session and relaunching Edge will bring back the long delay. Our adult accounts have no such issue using edge. Trying Mozilla Firefox on the child account also poses no such problems. We have no child restrictions setup online for the child account. So really he should be able to use Edge freely. But I feel the activity monitoring is somehow stifling the ability to use Edge.

    If it doesn't improve I feel like abandoning the child account and just having him use an adult account instead. At least then Edge will start working quicker. But how does one convert child account to adult account. Or do we have to wait several years for his age to tick over?

    Cheers,
    Wayne
