Controlling access to Vimeo content

Access for child users of the Vimeo app

When an Xbox Live account user is identified as a child by the Vimeo app, the following happens:

  • The app warns that it’s not accessible to users under 13 unless a parent provides the code to unlock the app.
  • If a parent unlocks the Vimeo app, the app warns that the parent is potentially allowing a user under 13 to log in to the app. The parent can then confirm or prevent the child from logging in.

It is the responsibility of the parent user to understand the Vimeo Terms of Service.

Note Xbox Support cannot change the age on a Microsoft account.

Using Family Setting to control access

If you use Family Settings to control what you share through Xbox Live, the Vimeo app will require a pass code for access. You'll need to enter the passcode for full access to the Vimeo app.

For more information about using a pass code, see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
