  3. Child account issues "is rated above xxx's content restrictions"

    When trying to watch shows on Hulu Plus, a password is needed because of the child account settings. I don't believe a password should be needed for "Dora the Explorer". I have gone in and changed the child settings to make the child account to 16 and
    still get the prompt.

    Childs password

    Same issue here. Ive been a software engineer for 15 years and you cant find a more looping and poorly thought out process. I KNOW my sons "microsoft account" - trust me I know this because no way I would have ever used a "hotmail" or "outlook" profile.
    We both had to reset our passwords except we can not recover his. If you enter his stinking outlook.com address it says its not found .....even when looking directly at it not only on the console but under my security settings for kids. Love that I cant talk
    to a human being about this. Microsoft Accounts/Child Accounts/ ends up in loops and make a grown man want to cry

  5. Hello you two,

    I've never really experienced this sort of issue as I've not been in the same situation. May I ask a few questions to find out a bit more so I can try better understand.

    Are you trying to recover your Child Xbox Account to an Xbox 360 Console?

    If so what does it say when you enter in his information?

    You mention that it remembers his E-Mail address? Why not try going to:

    http://account.live.com and login with what you think the password should be, and if it logs into the Account Section then you know the password is right. And I don't have much experience with Child Accounts
    so I don't know if it's granted access to accounts page. Could you try logging him into
    http://www.outlook.com? (Same applies to dredgeG87, if you don't have an outlook/hotmail account it won't make a difference, although you won't get e-mail into that account from outlook/hotmail unless configured,
    it should still login - This is just to test that the passwords are indeed correct)

    When entering attempting to sign in, does it even prompt for a Parent password? If so, could there be a chance that the parent password you are typing in is for the correct account? What I mean is, could his account be linked to another account that could
    be considered a Primary?

    Parental Consent

    Solution

    To resolve this issue, verify the information in both Microsoft accounts. To do this, follow these steps:

    Note If you’re asked to provide a credit card for parental consent validation and you don’t live in the United States, this means one of the following:

    The country field in your child’s Microsoft account is incorrect.

    The country field in your child’s Microsoft account is blank.

    Verify the personal information in the parent’s Microsoft account. To do this, follow these steps:

    Visit the Sign in page and sign in with the parent’s Microsoft account email address and password.

    Select Basic info.

    Verify the following information on the Personal info page:

    Date of birth

    Gender (optional)

    Country/region (required)

    Postcode (optional)

    Time zone (optional)

    Click Save, click the parent’s name in the upper right, and then click Sign out.

    Verify the personal information in the child’s Microsoft account. To do this, follow these steps:

    Visit the Sign in page and sign in with the child’s Microsoft account email address and password.

    Select Basic info.

    Verify the following information on the Personal info page:

    Date of birth

    Gender (optional)

    Country/region (required)

    Postcode (optional)

    Time zone (optional)

    Click Save, click the child’s name in the upper right, and then click Sign out.

    Note In some instances, you can’t change the country/region setting in the child’s account until the information in the parent’s account is verified. For example, this issue can occur if the country/region in the child account is set to US. If you can’t
    change the country/region setting in the child account, contact Xbox Support. You’ll need the Microsoft account email address for both the parent and the child accounts.

    To access your Xbox LIVE account, you must know the email address you used to set up your Microsoft account. Xbox Support can’t provide this information, even if you know your gamertag.

    There are several ways you can find the email address you used to set up your Microsoft account. You can find it on your console if you can still sign in. If you can’t sign in to your console, don’t worry. There are other places you can look for this information.

    If you need to find the email address for your child’s Microsoft account, see Find your child’s Microsoft account email address. If you’ve forgotten your Microsoft account password, see Microsoft account password forgotten.

    Note Microsoft account is the new name for what used to be called Windows Live ID. These two names mean the same thing. Your Microsoft account is the account that you use to manage your interactions with Xbox LIVE and other Microsoft services, including
    Outlook.com, OneDrive, Skype, Windows 8, Windows Phone, Xbox Music and more. This central account allows you to manage your purchases, billing information and content from a single account.

    This one is baffling, has the consent been set up yet? Just message me back on here with some more information on the problem if this answer hasn't solved the solution

    Regards,

    Daniel

    Child Account

    Hello goboilers777,

    Thank you for keeping us updated. The passkey is only for the Xbox. If the child knows the email address and password, the child will be able to change the family settings from a cell phone or computer. The best way to manage the security of the family settings
    is to set up the passkey on the console as recommended above and
    change the password of the adult account
    . If the child has access to the
    security information of the account
    , the child will be able to reset the password. In the event of attempting to change the password, the Microsoft account will send a verification code to the security information of the account. As long as the child does
    not have access to the security information, access to the password or access to the passkey; the child will not be able to change the family settings.
