Remove members from your family group

Applies to: Microsoft Account

Online

You can remove an account from a family group. The account will still exist, but it won't have the benefits or restrictions it had when it was within the family group. To remove a member from your family group, you must have an adult account, and be the one who gave consent.

  • Go to family.microsoft.com.
  • Sign in with your Microsoft account, then:
    • To remove a child, scroll down and select Manage my child's profile info, select the child, select Remove consent for this child's account, and confirm. Then, go back to your family’s page, and under the child’s name, select More options > Remove from family, and confirm.
    • To remove a child because they’re now an adult, or if an adult account has been misclassified as a child account, verify the account.
    • To remove an adult, under that person's name, select More optionsRemove from family, and confirm.
    • To leave the family group if you’re the only adult in the family, remove all children first, then find your name, select Leave family, and confirm. You must be over the statutory age to remove yourself.
    • If you're incorrectly listed as a child when you're an adult, see How to change a birthdate on a Microsoft account
