How to use your Xbox profile on another Xbox

It’s easy to use your Xbox profile on multiple consoles. For example, you can use your Xbox profile at your friend’s house, or on a second console at home.

Move your Xbox profile from one console to another

Before you can use your Xbox profile on a different console, you need to either download it to a different console from the Xbox Live service, or from a portable storage device, such as a flash drive or memory unit.

Notes

  • You can download your Xbox profile to multiple consoles. However, you can only sign in to one profile at a time.
  • Your Xbox profile updates automatically on your console and Xbox Live. This happens whenever you sign in or out of your profile.
  • If you were using a different console the last time you signed in to your profile, you’ll see a notification about this when you sign in. See "Your gamertag was last signed in on another console" message.

Download your Xbox profile from the Xbox Live service (recommended)

Download your Xbox profile to a portable storage device, such as a flash drive or memory unit

For more information about how to download your Xbox profile to a portable storage device, such as a flash drive or memory unit, see Move your Xbox profile to another Xbox 360 console using a flash drive or memory unit.

Notes

  • This method is not available for the Xbox One console.
  • If you move your Xbox profile using a USB flash drive or memory unit, the console prompts you for your Microsoft account password when you sign in to your profile on the portable storage device. This password requirement is permanent and protects the security of your account, in case the storage device is lost or stolen.
