    Did they change how often you need your passkey when you change account settings?


    In the past whenever you wanted to change anything related to your account such as home Xbox, account settings, billing etc. you would have to enter your passkey or password every time. So if you closed the settings app and you reopened
    it to change something again you would need to enter your passkey again. Now I only have to enter the passkey once during settings after I turn on the Xbox and no matter how much time has passed or closing the settings app you don't need a passkey again. Is
    this the same for everyone else? Is there anyway to change it?

    :)

    passkey question

    Hi Klubbie

    A passkey is required in order to change settings on the master account. However if you use a passkey in order to login to your Xbox Live account and other people know this passkey as well, they will be able to change settings on the master account as it
    is the same passkey.

    Hope that wasn't confusing.

    Hi there,

    It's best to create a new thread for your issue so you can get more personalized assistance.

    With regards to your question, as a passkey can only be created/changed while on a console, if you do not want someone to be able to access your account on a console who may have access to the account, you will want to change your account password. That
    password will need to be entered the next time the account is accessed on the console.

    Steps on how to change it can be found here: https://support.microsoft.com/microsoft-account-to-change-your-microsoft-account-password

    For extra account security, you can add two-step verification to your account. Additional information can be found

    here

    Email when sign in

    Hello Trevor,

    A stated above, you would not receive any sort of notification every time you sign in to your own console. Signing into a new console would prompt for a password, so you wouldn't need to worry there. If you are concerned about people using your account in
    your home, consider either adding a passkey to your account or changing the password.

    how can i get my gamertag back?

    Hi nickstanton2,

    Thanks for reaching out to us in the forums with this issue. In relation to any changes made to a Gamertag, if you've already used your initial complimentary change, then any further changes made would need to purchased. This means that even if you were
    game sharing with someone and they made the change, in order to change the Gamertag to something different you would need to pay the fee (which varies by region). Please also bear in mind that when game sharing, your profile need not be logged in and that
    you should never share your password with anyone in order to keep your account safe.

    To prevent occurrences like this in future, I recommend that you create a passkey on your accountso that any further changes to your account cannot be made. Here are a couple of support articles that you may find useful for keeping your account safe when
    game sharing:

    I hope that this information helps you out. Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Having reset child account to be parent account, the games & passes are now associated with adult account - can transfer??

    Passkey didn’t work!

    What Passkey option did you set? If you set a custom sign-in option that included "Don't ask, just sign me in; Ask for passkey for: Purchases, Changing my settings" then that may be how your friend can still log into your account without the passkey. Alternatively,
    maybe you set a Passkey that is too short or easy (eg mine is a 6 button combination) or your friend saw you use it.

    My gamertag

    Yeah unfortunately you used your free change when your brother changed it. On top of password change I would put a passkey on your account that only you know.
