    Microsoft Account Family artifacts


    I know a Microsoft user can add a family member to share services and monitor devices.Doing so also generates a 4720 event for the invited user. Getting an account created on the Windows machines using the source or inviter Microsoft Account. I take there is an api call to the machines and applies the account to related machines.Are there any specific event logs or network traffic that may indicate invites family member account creation?

    :)

  2. Microsoft Account Family Settings: There is an account in my family I didn't create

    Hi Andie,

    Thank you for posting your response.

    We appreciate the time and effort that you have invested in to fix the issue.

    As per the above information, I suggest that you refer to the steps below and check if you are bale to remove the unknown account.

    • Sign in at account.microsoft.com/family with your Microsoft account on any PC or device
    • Click/tap on Remove under Adults in
      Your family
    • Click/tap on the adult account you want to remove, and click/tap on Remove
    • You (adult) and all other adults in family will now get an email confirming the adult has been removed from the family

    Hope this helps

    Hi Laurel,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forum.

    This could happen when the child account fails to sync with the server. I suggest you to try the steps listed below and check if it works:

    • Open
      File Explorer
      and navigate to the following location:
    • C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Parental Controls


      Note:
      The above mentioned directory is hidden, copy and paste the same location on the search bar in the File Explorer to access it.
    • Delete the contents in the
      \\settings
      directory of the Parental Controls folder.
    • Reboot the machine to see if the issue persists.

    If the issue persists, you may want to remove the child account from Microsoft family and add it again.

    • To know how to remove an account from Microsoft Family, refer:

    • To know how to add an account to Microsoft Family, refer:
