How To Set Up Minecraft Parental Controls
Parental Controls on Minecraft Through XBox Live
- Log in to your Xbox Live Account at login.live.com. If you don’t have a Xbox Live Account, you can create one for free, but you have to sign up using a Microsoft account.
- Once in your Xbox Live Account, click Privacy and Online Safety. Here you’ll be able to see the gamerpics for everyone in your Microsoft Family.
- There are a number of settings available there, but the most important ones for Minecraft are:
- Join Multiplayer Games Settings: If you disallow this function, your child will not be able to join any multiplayer games in Minecraft — even shared local worlds, realms, or servers.
- Others Can Communicate with Voice, Text, or Invites Settings: If these settings are blocked, your child will still be able to join and play multiplayer Minecraft games, but they will not be able to see chat messages from other players or receive invitations to join other players’ games.
- Child Accounts for Under 13: You must provide permission to create an Xbox Live account, and you can create a child account here: https://account.microsoft.com/family/addmember. All child accounts have multiplayer communication settings blocked by default.
