Can I remove my account from someone else’s console?

If you no longer have access to the console, you won’t be able to remove the account remotely. However, you can change your account password, which will disable access to your profile on the other console. Here's how:

  1. Use a browser to sign in to your account.
  2. Click Security, family & Forums.
  3. Click Change password.
  4. Change your password, and then click Save.

If your account is on someone else’s Xbox 360 console, go to Xbox 360 Profile Protection. There you can sign out of Xbox Live on all Xbox 360 consoles and require a fresh profile download on all Xbox 360 consoles.
