    How to reset a microsfot family childs password


    I am trying to reset my childs outlook.com password but something is off as during verification i choose send a txt message to the number and it gives me error "This service is not available at this time" when i try to use call option it does nothing after last 4 digits phone number verification.


    I did the third option by selecting i dont have access to either and it gave me bunch of question, filled up couple of times in last 2 days but keep getting email, you did not provide enough information.


    Is there any way i can unlock and reset my childs email account password?


    Thanks.

    :)

    "We can certainly help you in resetting your child's password. Log in your account on the device then go to Control Panel > User Accounts > Manage
    another accounts. Check if you can modify the password. "

    As stated above, I can not do it though windows because it is a Microsoft family account.

    "If you still can't change the password, go toReset your password.
    Select the appropriate option then reset the password."

    The link you sent me is to rest my password. I want to reset my child's password, which is none of the options.

    I do not want to "send her email" a password, I just want to be able to control it and change it. not sure why that functionality has disappeared going into Microsoft 10 and Microsoft family.

    Let's mark the posts accordingly.

    This feature has retired from the formerly known Family Safety. The reset password link above can also work with your child's account. You just need to put your child's Microsoft account instead of yours. Although, your last sentence makes us think that
    the account isn't locked out. If you just want to change the password, log in your child's account directly at
    https://account.microsoft.com and change it from there. However, every important activities like password change will always be notified and sent to your child's email.
