Manage app privacy settings on Xbox One

When you download apps from the Store on your Xbox One, each app requires permission to access data from your console. You can use the privacy settings on your console to control what data Microsoft collects and how it’s used.

Manage app privacy settings on your Xbox One console

To manage your app privacy settings and data collected from your console:

  1. On your Xbox One console, select Settings > Privacy & online safety > App privacy.
  2. From the list, select the checkboxes next to the data for which you’re giving permission to be collected.

Note When you give apps permission on a console, it’s only saved on that console. If you use multiple consoles, make sure you give your apps permission on all your consoles.

Manage app privacy settings for your child’s account

If you’re using a child account, you’ll need an adult who’s part of your family to sign in to their Microsoft account to change your privacy settings. To manage the app privacy settings and what type of data is collected from your child’s account on the console:

  1. Sign in to the console with the adult’s Microsoft account.
  2. Go to Settings > Family.
  3. Select the child account you’d like to manage, and then go to Privacy & online safety > App privacy to give permission.

Note If multiple gamers are signed in, apps can only access data for which everyone has given permission.
