  1. How to change my account from child to adult


    Hello,


    I have recently turned 13 years old and I was wondering if my account could now be changed to adult? I am in New South Wales, Australia and I'm pretty sure 13 is the minimum age. If I can, how?

    :)

    Changing a Microsoft account from an (incorrectly entered) adult birthdate to the correct child's birthdate

    The links provided in the above response pertain to an account which is already setup as a child. That is not my situation.

    My issue is going from an ADULT account to a CHILD account. Currently, the account is setup (incorrectly) as an adult account. I would like to update the birthdate to reflect that this is a child account.

    This is an easy scenario to test:

    • Setup a new Microsoft account with a birthdate that makes you an adult.
    • Log off and then log back in
    • Go to your profile and attempt to change the birth date to make you a child.
    • The system will prevent you from making this change.
    Any suggestions?

    How to change my account from child to adult

    Changing a child account to an adult account

    Hello David,

    Once your son reaches 18 years old, the system will automatically change his profile to adult. If it's still showing as a child account even he already reached 18 years old, we recommend checking the article about
    How do I change the birthdate on a Microsoft account? and then follow the steps underI'm a parent, trying to change my child's birthdate on this
    link. If the issue persists, we suggest taking the two options from the article about
    I’m an adult, but my account thinks I’m a child.

    Once you're done, let us know the result.
