    Removed from Family, After Someone else was added that was not approved by a adult me


    I got a email someone was added to my family without my permission, then 2 minutes later one saying my account was removed from my family.
    I never approved anyone to join.
    If a child account can, this is a MASSIVE issue.

    :)

  2. How to delete an adult account in the Family Settings.

    Hi,

    To resolve your issue, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • As an adult in the family account, sign in with your Microsoft account.
    • Under Your family, click
      Remove
      .
    • Click the child account you want to remove, and click Remove.
    • You will get an email confirmation once the child has been removed from the family.
    Note: If you removed a Child account, it will be tagged as an "Orphaned account" and you will need to attach another "Parent account".

    Regards.

    Removed from Family, After Someone else was added that was not approved by a adult me

    Family and other people, cannot remove adult in any screen. name and email remains.

    Hi KDF64,

    Before you will be able to remove an adult account, you have to remove all the child accounts under Family. One of the methods to check the account description is by going to Settings. You can follow the steps below:

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts.
    3. Click Family & other accounts.
    4. Under the account user name is the description of the account. You will see if it is a
      Child account or an Adult account.

    To remove an account from the Family in Windows 10 or on Xbox One, you can follow the steps in this

    link.

    Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.
