Video: Sign in by turning on your controller

Watch the video Sign in by turning on your controller. Note This video is available in English only.

Sign in to your Xbox One with your favorite controller by linking that controller to your profile. Once you’ve linked a controller, you’ll automatically be signed in as soon as you turn on that controller.

Only one person can link their profile to a controller at a time, so make sure you link a controller that only you use.

To link a controller:

  1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
  2. Go to Settings > Account > Sign-in, security & passkey.
  3. Select This controller signs in, and then choose Link controller to link the controller you’re using.
