What happens when a child tries to watch hidden content on Xbox One

Hidden content is a specific game or video program that you’ve marked to hide from a child account. Content marked as hidden will not play when a child tries to use a Microsoft child account to watch it on the Xbox One console. Unlike the standard content restriction, in which a parent can provide a passkey to override the restriction, the console doesn’t allow a parent to provide an exception for hidden content. The only way to play this content is for the parent to deselect “hide above my maturity level,” or for the child to sign out and a person with an adult account to sign in.
