How to sign out of Xbox One

How to sign out of your Xbox Live profile if you are currently in control of your console

Note When more than one person is signed in to the console at the same time, only one of those people is in control of the console. If you don't see your gamerpic in the upper-left corner of the screen, you're not in control of the console.

  1. To return to the Home screen, press the Xbox button to open the guide, and then select Sign in.
  2. Select your account, press the A button on your controller, and then select Sign Out.

Your profile has been saved and will be accessible the next time you want to sign in to this console. If you don't think you'll be using this console again, you can remove your account from the console.
