Set an age limit for content on Xbox One

To ensure your kids have access only to family-friendly games, apps, TV shows, and movies on their Xbox One, you can choose from preset recommendations by age.

  1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide, and then go to System > Settings > Account > Family settings.
  2. Select Manage family members, and then select the child account you want to update. Under Access to content, choose the desired age-level restriction. (By default, your child’s restrictions will be set to the age associated with their Microsoft account.)

When your child asks to use a blocked app or game that’s rated above their content restrictions, you can approve it by signing in with your passkey and selecting Always or Just this once.
