How to set up Xbox One for your Child


  1. Hi Ashish,
    Thanks for the info. Do you know if following this process will prevent the previews from playing on the Mixer tab? I notice that from my XBox account, if you tab over to Mixer there are live streams of Call of Duty and Red Dead Redemption which can be kept on permanently by simply hovering over the windows. As well as the blood and gore there was a woman drinking what looked like WKD vodka, swearing and sticking her fingers up to the camera. No age warnings at all (unless you tried to click the window).
    I am considering setting up the family center but do you know if this will prevent these streams from previewing?

  2. Hey Neil,

    I will have to look into this. I am way from my Xbox so give me a day or so.

    Its an intresting point though. I never thought about it, and that reminds yeah I will need something like this for my son too.

    I will look into Mixer settings to check on it.

    Will keep you posted.


  3. So here is the deal, there is no way to prevent these streams from preview or even watching. Mixer age limit on content is based on an honor system where a streamer can ignore it despite being listed as child friendly. So at most, you can block it completely.

  4. Hello Ashish, thanks for the article. Do you have any insight into using Parent Gold account and games for multiple consoles in the same home? I.e – me and my two boys playing at the same time on three different consoles
