Family Settings / Blocking Online Purchases //

No assistance required -- just a future software update suggestion.

I would really like a Family Setting that allows me to either completely BLOCK Xbox Live purchases or require a PASSWORD to authorize transactions. One of my children recently purchased 6000 MS Points ($75) with the push of a button and quickly used them before I received the confirmation e-mail. Since Family Settings doesn't allow me to block purchases, I've opted to disable Xbox Live access on our 360. I am not interested in purchasing the more expensive Xbox Gold Family package -- basic Gold is good enough. I can block access to specific game and movie ratings -- why not purchases?

Hello AirlessCashew65, please contact support in your region, they can give you a reset code once you prove you are the account holder of the account that has the pass code on it.

Gaming, something all gamers do, no matter which system they use.

Hello,

You would want to put this in the correct place (which would be Feedback :)) the folks that make the wheels turn actually read those forums and do take feedback from other customers. The feedback forum can be found here.
