    How to add a child's profile without creating a Xbox Live profile

    I believe that to add a member to the Family they need to have an Xbox Live profile.

    support.xbox.com/.../add-family-member

    However, you could then change the parental controls to restrict what your son could do - eg, not allow him to play online, not able to accept friend requests or to communicate with people other than friends.

    Good day,

    if you are on console then check out your privacy settings and make sure that you are enabled to join online games and enabled to add friends and communicate with others.

    Problemas com a conta -[Translation - Account issues]

    Hello JoãoPedroXR,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. We understand that you are unable to add friends due to your Microsoft account's privacy settings. If you have a child account, you must

    add your child account to a family by using an adult account. This will allow the adult account to

    alter the privacy settings of the child account
    so the child account can add friends and utilize other social features. The articles we provided contain steps on how to complete this process. Be sure to let us know the results!

    Xbox account followers

    Greetings DeathInAbsentia,

    So, just want to start by defining what a follower vs friend is on Xbox. A follower is simply anyone who has added you to their friends list. A friend is someone who has added you back. What you are doing is correct. If you block them, then they can't communicate with you or check your activity and such.

    I would just double check that your privacy and online safety settings are up to date and keep the above definitions in mind when doing so as some of the settings allow for everyone or just friends options.

    We have a privacy landing page to help you out manage your settings here

    Hope this helps and happy gaming!

    Spam/ follow bots

    Hi Jakob!

    Unfortunately, we cannot control who's going to follow us. That's fine because it's like they're trying to add you as friend - as long as you don't accept or add them back, they cannot be part of your friend's list.

    You may instead change or edit your privacy settings to control how you communicate or share your account information online.

    Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    Select Profile & system > Settings > Account > Privacy & online safety > Xbox privacy.
