How To Change Your Age On Xbox Live

In this video, Rene Millman of Absolute Gadget explains how to change your age on Xbox Live. This is particularly useful if you have children and want to set restrictions on the content that they can download, or if you've made a mistake when inserting your own age and want to change it.

Hi, I'm Rene Millman, editor of Absolute Gadget. Today, I will be talking about the Xbox 360. In this video, I'll be showing you how to change your age on Xbox Live with a laptop.

Now, if you setup Xbox Live and you set up your account, you may have found that you might have accidentally put the wrong age in. If you put the wrong age in as too low, then you may find that certain content is restricted, because obviously, some content on Xbox is for a more mature adult. So the best way to do that is to go to the parental controls, type in the parental email and then change the age that way.

You'll find then that you should have the right age that is appropriate for you and you can download any content without any age restrictions. Okay, so if you go into My Xbox and go right to the end and choose family settings and you just hit the fan settings button here, and then we've got the Xbox Live controls. This is where you can determine your child's age or if you've made a mistake, you can change the age in order to get the content that you should have.

If you're a parent who has a child, family settings are there so you can use an account for your child, so they can download the content that is appropriate for their age and make sure that they're safe when using the Xbox. .
