Frequently asked questions

If I don’t share my real name with someone on my friends list but my friend does, can that person see my real name through friends of friends?

No. Your real name will remain hidden from that person regardless of whether your friend is sharing real names with that person. Your preference is honored first.

How do I tell if someone can see my real name?

  1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
  2. Select People > Friends.
  3. Select that person’s gamertag.
  4. Select Can they see my name? from the Report or block drop-down menu.

This shows whether that person can see your real name and which friend is sharing your name. If you want to change the real name sharing permission for this person, you can do it here.

Can I block someone from seeing my real name if they aren’t on my friends list?

Yes. To block a specific person from seeing your real name, add that person to your block list by selecting Block under Report or block on that person’s gamercard. See How to mute or block other players on Xbox Live.

Can people see the real name of my child?

No. Real name sharing is not available for young children. Teens can share real names, but only if an adult in the family enables this setting for their account.

How do I edit how my real name appears?

You can edit how your name appears at account.microsoft.com/profile. Select Your info, select Edit name, and then update the name you want others to see.
