  1. Microsoft birthdate change


    Why can I not change the birthdate of the microsoft account? We accidentally put it as 2017 and are locked out of doing certain things. When I go in to change the birthdate, it is not even an option to do so. I need to change this. Please help!

    :)

    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?

    Error while changing my son's birthdate to be a child account: "Your birthdate cannot be updated at this time"

    My son's account was set up as a standard Microsoft adult account. When I try to change his birthdate to be a child, I get this error:

    Your birthdate cannot be updated at this time.

    • He is already listed as in my family and shows in my Family list as an adult
    • I am not allowed to manage his account from my own account (because he's listed as an adult)
    • I have his login
    • While logged into his account, I am given the option to change his birthdate, but it doesn't work.
    • When I try to change the birthdate from within his account, I am given a prompt that I will be charged $0.50 to change his account into a child account.
    • I agree to the $0.50 charge.
    • Instead of updating his birthdate or asking for CC info, I get that error: Your birthdate cannot be updated at this time.
    • If I change his country to Canada, I can update the birthdate, but the account still isn't a child account (which is my entire goal)
    • If I try to change his country back to USA while keeping the correct birthdate, I get that same error above saying the birthdate cannot be updated at this time (even though I'm changing the country; not the birthdate).

    Please help. I just want my son's account listed as a child account so I can manage his account and content restrictions. I have three children in my Family account. Two of which are showing as adults but are children.

    How do I update my child's birthdate to convert his standard account into a child account?
