gamertag change

I want to change my gamertag to avoid someone, but if I've signed in on that someone's console in the past, will they be able to see the new name? If I remember correctly, Xbox saves profiles of anyone that has used that console.

please to avoid someone you need to open their profile on your account by using a old message or new, then choosing avoid player, and ontop of that please use the block player function which will also be found in an old or new message.

as to you using your profile on the xbox in the past, once you recovered your profile back to your account they will no longer see your profile on theirs and if they do it will not update itself so no they should not be able to see your new name. but creating a new name should not be necessary if you just avoid and block this user. if you have any other problems you should really contact an official support agent by phoning 1800-4my-xbox

best of luck to you -Listed

"Avoid" was just a nice way of saying, 'to keep my ex from stalking me' without making everything offline and blocked.

You can go to Xbox Account Setting and got to Account Sharing and you should turn it on so when that other person trys to log on your account  they will need the password

This person can not sign in to my account. I signed in on their console once and now my profile is listed on their sign in screen. I just want to know, if I change my gamertag, will the new one show up on their sign in screen, since it's still the same profile just different name. I don't know how much clearer I can make this.

Hey there Kitt! I just tested this out on my console. After changing the Gamertag from the PC (my free one for the new account) it did not update the one on the console's sign in list. Once I selected the account it told me I needed to Download it again (MSA and Password required) and then it updated the name. I think it's safe for you to change it. Let us know if you have any additional questions, thanks!
