Sign in to your Xbox One with a personal controller

Video: Sign in to your Xbox One by turning on your favorite controller, just as if you had chosen your profile in the guide.

Note This video is available in English only.

Sign in to your Xbox One with your favorite controller by linking that controller to your profile. Once you’ve linked a controller, you’ll be automatically signed in as soon as you turn that controller on.

Only one person can link their profile to a controller at a time so make sure you link a controller that only you use.

To link a controller:

  1. Press the Xbox button  to open the guide, then go to Settings > Account > Sign-in, security & passkey.
  2. Select This controller signs in, and choose Link controller to link the controller you’re using.
