Change your child’s Xbox privacy and online safety settings

Applies to: Xbox OneMicrosoft account

The fastest way to change your child’s privacy and settings for Xbox is to do it online.  Only Microsoft family adults can do this. Here’s how:  

  • Go to and sign in with an adult's Microsoft account. Next, choose Profile > Privacy Settings. Follow the instructions to verify your identity. 
  • Next, select your child's gamertag. 
  • Choose Xbox One/Windows 10 Online Safety, adjust the settings, then select Submit. Do the same for Privacy and Xbox 360 Online Safety. 
  • To update the changes you’ve just made in all the devices your child uses to play Xbox, have your child sign out of each device, and then sign back in.
