Remove your Microsoft account password from your Xbox 360 or Xbox One console

You can save your Microsoft account password on your Xbox 360 or Xbox One console so that you can have a quick, simplified sign-in experience for Xbox Live. However, if you no longer want to store your Microsoft account password on your console, you can remove it. Saving your Microsoft account on your console is not related to signing in to your Xbox Live profile. If you remove your Microsoft account password from your console, you’ll be prompted to enter it whenever you sign in to Xbox Live on your console.

Note For information about how to require your Microsoft account password to sign in to your profile, see Password-protect your Xbox Live profile.
