Remove a family member from your Xbox One family

Overview

The primary purpose of creating a “family” on Xbox One is to make it easier to manage parental controls and online safety for children.

All adults in the family can remove other family members; however, adults and children have different rights when it comes to managing the family.

You can remove a member from your Xbox One family by following the steps described on this page. Note that once an adult has been removed from a family, it’ll require the assistance of another family member to add them back.

Note You must be online and signed in to Xbox Live in order to remove a member from your family.
