We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
Sorry you’re having the issue. If you’re very serious about your child’s access, there is a way to limit the child’s access. It’s not as clean as the Family Timer color code setting but may be effective for you.
Here’s what you might do - require as password to access the Xbox. You will have to enter the password each time your child accesses the Xbox console and keep the password from your child:
1. Change your account (or your child’s account) password. You can do this on your PC (not your Xbox) as not to alert the child to your determination to limit his/her access. You can change your account password at this link:
support.xbox.com/.../change-microsoft-account-password which will walk you through some security information for the console and guide you through the password change.
Be sure that your account proofs are up-to-date. Optionally you can require another password to access the Xbox console through Two Step Verification. The Xbox will require another (separate) password in order for the console to be accessed.
2. If your child has access to the email address associated with the account you can create a live.com email address at the account information screen. Have all of your account information come to the live.com address you create which will be password
protected with the password you just created.
3. Now you’re set to require a password to access the Xbox. On the Xbox navigate to Settings, then Profile, then Account Security, then password sign in and select “require password here”.
The console will now require the password you created in step one above (or the password created in the Two Step Verification) in order to be accessed.
I know it’s a hassle but it might serve your purpose until the Family Timer code issue is fixed.
