    Hi guys,

    you can stop any logins on your account that is on another xbox by signing in here: -> change password -> Security -> More Security options -> scroll down to trusted devices, remove all. the other devices will need a password again.

    this is a feature that should have been available from Day 1. There should always be a way to unlink your account from a console, their biggest rival and arguably a better console maker Sony, has had this for a long time. Heck even Nintendo has a multiple ways of doing so why doesn't Microsoft?

    If it happens to be something you can do now through some round about way can we get someone to update this post.

    I Agree. Personally I gave my 16 year old my last console and left my profiles on it so she had games and come to find out she don't have possession of it any longer and I only know this because I logged in to my PC the is is windows 10 my Microsoft account is used on it well long story short one day my name was not being welcomed but some name unknown to myself and no one has my passwords but myself the only link was that console I gave my kid and we'll all I can do with out spending to long with support because there are 4 profiles that belong to me on the console is to just change the password but that don't kill the profile rights and/or make that console no longer the home console it just stops them from logging in I don't want my profiles and I don't want someone that tried to already take ownership of my profile because I have stupid amount of money spent on Xbox via dlc and have 200 games on the Xbox one with external drives I don't want any of the profiles and games both to work for some one that attempted to steal what's mine to begin with

    I hope microsoft does not ignore this. Its already bothersome enough dealimg with the 3 switch per year. This would be great since someone who im no longer friends with has my licences on their console and ive used up the 3 swithes per year.

    Right, someone could have your account forever and there would be no possible way to remove it. It can be made so we have to go through security questions to do so.

    I'd be happy to see the ability to remotely remove a profile from another console rather than having to change the password.

    What? You can already do this, be forcing an account redownload on all systems through the xbox website.

    This would be greatly appreciated (and since I think this feature is available on 360, I don't see how brining it to One is asking too much).

    I an see this being good. I wouldn't use it because I don't use my profile on other consoles but still. It's a nice feature.

    Excellent request. Sadly I landed on this page wanting to do exactly this right now, but it seems that the feature isn't supported yet. Hopefully it will be added!

    It would be good. Going on vacation to visit family then halfway home you realize you didn't remove your profile from their Xbox.

  • murph17 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This would be very helpful. I am an Xbox Ambassador and get a lot of questions about the "3 changes/year" limit. Now some people are pulling a fast one and trying to get the counter reset, but a lot of other people just need a way to remove their account from a console not in their possession anymore. This would help those people out.
