  1. Xbox screen time limits


    Hi, when are the screentime limits ever going to be fixed. Why cannot Microsoft get this right or are the kids of today too clever?

    I have setup a time period in which I allowed my teen to play and set how many hours he can play for. When he logs in its gives more or less the correct time he can play till if he uses all his time up at once. Yet he plays past that time and when you check the time till he can play for on Xbox again, its changed into the next day. I have app/game limits switched off as I don't mind what he plays in his time given. Why have screen time limits if the don't work.

    :)

    Xbox One activty not counting against screen time limit

    Hello,

    I have time limits set up on my kids Microsoft Accounts and it works fine when they are on Windows PCs, however the time limit is not working when they are signed in on Xbox and I don't see their Xbox activity when I look at their profiles or see the weekly
    report. Any suggestions?

    Thanks
