  1. Lock Xbox One with Main Profile and PIN

    Allow the primary owner of the Xbox One to force their profile to load on boot, if a PIN number is used to lock the main account the Xbox will be locked for all users until the primary user enters their PIN.

    • Allow Adult Accounts to Approve Child Account Requests Remotely

      Having multiple xbox one's in our household makes using parental controls frustrating. If I am using my xbox one and my child needs my approval to use netflix for example, i am required to sign in on his xbox temporarily to approve such activities which then signs me out of my xbox and kicks me off whatever I was doing. Allowing an adult account to sign in to their childs xbox without kicking the adult off their own console would be greatly beneficial.

      • 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.
