    How to See Devices Connected to Account of Microsoft Family Child Member


    One of the many benefits of having a Microsoft account is a family group, which gives you access to family features and settings. It's a free service that helps families stay connected and keeps kids safer on Windows 10, Xbox One devices, and Android devices running Microsoft Launcher. Youll find settings like activity reporting, screen time limits, location sharing, and content filters, where you can also track kids spending and add money to their Microsoft accounts.

    A Microsoft family group is separate from other Microsoft apps and programs. You can sign up with your email account. If you already use Skype, youll have a family chat set up and waiting for you once you create your family group. If you dont already have Skype, get more information and sign up to create an account for your family.

    Once you set up your family group, you can add or remove child and adult members.

    A Microsoft account is what you use to sign in to Microsoft services such as outlook.com (or Hotmail), Office, OneDrive, Skype, Xbox, Windows, and more. It makes your experiences on devices and services more personal and relevant to you.

    Any device (ex: PC, phone, tablet, laptop, Xbox, etc...) that you signed in to with your Microsoft account will be associated (connected) with your Microsoft account, and listed under "remove the device.

    As an adult in your Microsoft family group, you can see all devices connected to your child's account.

    Adding a child family member

    Thanks for your reply. Here are my responses to your questions.


    • Adult accounts - set to administrator? How many?
      Yes set to admin. Two are, however both aren't connected to my son's account, only mine shows connection to his.

    • Child accounts - set to child and connected to a Microsoft Account? How many?
      Yes, one child account is connected.

    • Does
      account.microsoft.com/family
      show your family correctly?
      When I log in with my email, it shows my son as a child on my account.
    I don't know what this statement means.
    Section for the kids - should show a line item for each MSA (where settings will be applied to all Windows 10 and Windows Phone devices), and a separate line for each other non-Windows 10 device connected to the Family service.

    Something went wrong message when my child clicks join family link in the email.

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    • Is the Child account a Microsoft account?

    The issue might be due to the age verification, hence I suggest you to verify the child’s age by logging in with child’s account on
    account.microsoft.com/family and verify the age.

    I also suggest you to refer the article
    Add members to your family group to get more information on adding members to your family account.

    Regards,
