Help kids shop responsibly by adding money to their Microsoft accounts, so they can buy what they want, without spending too much.
- Go to account.microsoft.com/family and sign in with your Microsoft account.
- Find your child’s name and select More options > Spending > Add money and follow the instructions. There are several preset amounts to choose from. Your Microsoft account balance and gift cards are non-transferable to another person or Microsoft account. For more info, see Microsoft gift cards terms and conditions.
- Turn on Ask a parent to help avoid surprise spending when your child uses credit cards: Find their name, select Content restrictions, then switch Needs adult approval to buy things to On.
