How to manage your activity feed and privacy

The activity feed lets you post messages to friends and share your latest exploits. Make a general post by heading to the Community twist and selecting Got something to share?, or comment on any of your friends’ achievements, screenshots, game clips, or broadcasts.

For information on managing your child’s privacy settings, see Change your child’s Xbox privacy and online safety settings.

Whose comments and captions can I see in activity feeds?

Adults can see comments and captions made by anyone else on Xbox Live. (Teens and children start with more restrictive settings.) If that doesn't appeal to you, you can change this by going to Settings and selecting Account > Privacy & online safety > Xbox Live privacy > View details & customize > Game content > You can see and share content. Choose Friends or Block to narrow whose comments and captions you can see.

Who can see my activity feed?

For adults, anyone can check out what's going on in your activity feed. (Teens and children start with more restrictive settings.) Here are other things they can do:

  • Like something in your feed.
  • Share something in your feed with someone else.
  • See who liked or shared something.
  • Leave comments on something in your feed.
  • Read other peoples’ comments.

To change your activity feed preferences, update your privacy settings by going to Settings and selecting Account > Privacy & online safety > Xbox Live privacy > View details & customize > Communication & multiplayer > Others can see your activity feed. Choose Friends or Block to narrow who can see your feed.

What else can affect my activity feed?

A couple settings will share achievements and game captures automatically to your activity feed every time you create one. To check these, go to Settings and select Preferences > Activity feed > Share achievements automatically for achievements and Preferences > Activity feed > Share clips & screenshots automatically for game captures.
