My Games & Apps Should Only Show Approved Games for Child Accounts

Can an option be added to hide all age restricted games on the Xbox when a child logs in.

If a parent logs in as well, then they could allow/unhide a game if it is not showing up.

        This. Im glad i didnt have to make a new suggestion. There is an option to hide game tiles in the 'ready to install' section of the game library. Just extend this to the 'installed' also and have that apply only to child accounts. Then need adult account permission to unhide anything hidden. Skullbones and other types of game icons has no reason being there for child accounts unless approved by an adult. That, and it saves them calling me every single time they try and launch one of my games and it asks for permission. They shudnt be trying to launch it in the first place as it should not be there.

        I agree with the comment made by Alexandre de Menezes. There should be a way to define which of the installed games / music / videos are private for a parent account and make them invisible to children. This should also apply for the store. Kids should not be able to even see games not rated for their age.

        My kids are able to browse my entire games, movies and music collection. They should only see whats is allowed by default based on the age restrictions I've applied and the content I have authorized explicitly.
