Using Family Settings to control access to content

If you use Family Settings to control which movies and TV shows can be watched through Xbox Live, the Maxim app will not start when a child account is signed in, unless the Family Settings pass code is entered. To edit these settings, an adult must change the Social Network Sharing privacy settings.

For more information about how to restrict Xbox Live content using Family Settings, see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
