    I recently installed a game launcher app, and when I tried to open it, I got the "You'll need permission to use this app" pop up that normally comes up when you try to open a restricted app in a MSFT Family. The problem is that I left my Microsoft Family group years ago, and haven't had a pop up ever since. The "ask by email" button just throws a "something went wrong" error, and I cannot bypass this pop up in any other way. What's the problem here?

    :)

  2. Microsoft Family spurious "ask for permission" message

    Thank you for your reply.



    I'm sorry to hear that you are facing the issue again.



    Just to narrow down the issue, I suggest you to
    follow the methods mentioned below.

    Method 1

    1. Login to
      https://account.microsoft.com/family/
      with the Microsoft Account and check if it says Adult/child account.
    2. After checking the credentials, see if it is part of a family then remove it from the family group and check the status of the issue.
    If the issue still persists, refer method 2.



    Method 2

    I suggest you to create a new user profile in Windows 10 and check the status of the issue.

    Refer the article Create a local user or administrator account
    in Windows 10
    for the steps.

  3. Ask for Permission - Google Chrome

    I'm having the same problem but when I unadded myself from my "family" nothing happened and it is still prompting me to ask permission to use any third party browser. I followed all the steps Microsoft provides. When I click "ask by email" it tells me there's
    an error. This is probably because I'm not a part of a family. Please help me with this because I'm really starting to become annoyed.
