  1. Go to and sign in with your Microsoft account.

  2. Find your family member and select Content restrictions.

  3. Go to Apps, games & media. Under Allow apps and games rated for select the age limit you want to apply to them.

  4. When they ask to use a blocked app or game, you can approve it and add it to the Always allowed list, which is under Content restrictions.
