    How do I change how often my child is required to enter their password?


    I have a family account set up. I am the owner and I have one child on it.

    Every time we try to log them in on Xbox, it requires a password. I want to change it so that we don't have to enter a password every time (which is how it works on my own account).

    I have been all over Family and Xbox sites and don't see where I can do this. But I know I chose it as an option when I set the account up, so it must be possible to change.

    Thanks!

    :)

    Hello Josh1907,



    Greetings!



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.



    It seems that you are trying to change the sign in preferences of your child account in Xbox console. Let us help you get to the bottom of this.

    To change how often your child is required to enter their password on Xbox, you can follow these steps:



    1. Sign in to your Microsoft account and go to the Family page.

    2. Select your child's account and click on "More options."

    3. Click on "Sign-in, security & passkey."

    4. Under "Change sign-in, security & passkey preferences," select "Change my sign-in & security preferences."

    5. Choose "No barriers" to remove the requirement for a password every time your child signs in.



    Please note that removing the password requirement may compromise the security of your child's account. It is recommended to keep the password requirement in place to ensure the safety of your child's account.

    password lock a child account

    ok now your confusing us

    lets start all over again

    "My particular scenario has pre-teen girls that will know how to go into account settings and change it. And i do not want that pls."

    child accounts are locked to parental windows live id requireing you or the child to enter the parental password

    this can be done at www.passport.com and manage your child accounts and change your parental windows live id password



    its easier if you have a family account and it can be change at the family center and only the master account cna change those settings

    if your children want to go and download m rated demos no parental setting will allow them to do that

    they must wait till they are 18

    Xbox and outlook

    In the Xbox's settings you can set it to auto-sign in and not require a password on bootup. You could change your password, enter the new password yourself, and set it to auto-signin without a password so no one but you ever needs to know the new password.
    This is how I have my Xbox set up and I never have to enter my password.

    How do I require password to be entered for profile switching?

    I am assuming you have a Parent Account and then Child Accounts for your kids. You can then adjust the content level of what you want them to play on the website and also restrict time of day and how long per day they can play. For example, I have my kids
    setup to Teen and below games and they cannot play before 8am in the morning or after their bedtime at night. This ensures that I am awake and know what is going on in the house. I have Mature games installed that I play when I sign in but they don't have
    access to them.

    Sign in to the Xbox, go to Settings --> Account --> Sign-in, security & passkey.

    Set it up to "Ass for my passkey" for the Sign-in & security preferences. Create a passkey, it is shorter than a password and just uses controller combinations for login.

    Then make sure that "Instant sign-in" is set to Nobody.

    Then make sure "This controller signs in" is set to Nobody.

    These options should make it so the system opens up and someone will have to sign in to play games. The kids accounts you can set them so a password and passkey is not needed.

    I would also go into System --> Signed-out content restrictions

    Set "Access to content" as Restricted

    Set "Let people download & make new accounts" to unchecked.

    This will limit what can be done without signing into with an account and will not let the kids "make a new account" and get around your parental controls.
