My son was able to disable the Family Timer without having the required password

I set up a password (that I know my kids don't know) and somehow my son was able to disable the  family timer without using the password.  How is he able to do this?  I am not home all the time, and I don't want him using the games when I am not home because he loses track of how long he has been on.  (a little bit of an addiction issue I think!) 

Is there anything I can do electronically to make it not possible for him to do this?

Was it the four digit passcode you used (entered via the control pad)?

Honestly the only thing possible is that they guessed it, or you mistakenly put a passcode on just the account rather than the Xbox Console itself.

There is a way of reseting your XBOX to factory settings which removes the password. At one point there was a video of the hack on YouTube but it's been removed since. Once the reset has happened the user has to reconfigure WiFi settings but doesn't lose their profile information.
