  1. Child account


    Hello, I am turning 18 in couple of days and my account is a child account. I have went through several customer service discussions but neither were able to help me. Here is my issue, the family member that created my account lost
    that email.... So pretty much I am stuck not being able to make purchases and I have 30 dollars just sitting on my account. When i finally turn 18 does the account change by itself or should I create a new one?

    :)

    Child account

    When you turn 18 the account will be made an adult account automatically.

    Child account not a child account?

    I contacted support. They said there was nothing I could do. I guess when we created her Live account we accidentally put the wrong birth date in. The one entered made her account an adult account and support told me there is no way to convert an adult
    account into a child account. She has achievements and such saved and wiping the slate clean wouldn't have been the most ideal situation.

    Child account not a child account?

    if your girlfriends daughter's birthday when she set up the account is under 13 then the 50 cents would have to be paid and an adult account linked. if the account age is under the age of 18 but above 13 then it needs an adult account linked to it.

    How do I make it so my child can stream on Xbox series s when hes old enough but it says it will be disabled

    Thank you for contact us! I'm Anderson, an Independent Consultant and a Microsoft user like you.

    good evening

    If your child's Xbox Series S account is set up as a child account, there are a few steps you can take to allow your child to stream on the console when they are old enough.

    Make sure that your child's account is linked to a parent account. If it is not already linked, you can link the child account to a parent account by going to "Settings" > "Account" > "Family" on the console, and then following the prompts to link the accounts.

    Once the child account is linked to a parent account, the parent can change the privacy and online safety settings for the child account by going to "Settings" > "Account" > "Family" > "Manage family members" > [child's name] > "Privacy & online safety".

    Under the "Privacy & online safety" settings, the parent can change the settings for "Online safety" and "Broadcasting". For example, the parent can allow the child to participate in multiplayer gaming and share content online, or allow the child to stream content.

    If the parent account is not able to change the settings for the child account, it may be because the child account is set up as a "Younger child" account. In this case, the parent will need to request that the child's account be converted to a "Child" account. This can be done by going to "Settings" > "Account" > "Family" > "Manage family members" > [child's name] > "Change to a child account".

    I hope this information helps you allow your child to stream on the Xbox Series S.

    Hello PhilipBasgal,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. We understand that you are interested in changing a child account to an adult account. Once an account has been established as a child account, it cannot be changed to an adult account until the child turns
    18. The best way to manage the child account is to
    add it to a family
    . This requires an adult account to add the child account to the family. Once the child account has been added to the adult account's family, the child account will be able to access online features. Be sure to let us know the results!

    Switching accounts

    You can't transfer licenses or content from one account to another.

    The accounts Parent / Child are separate accounts. The parent account just manages the child account.

    The child account will remain a child account until the birth date that was used for that account reaches the age of 18.
