How you update your Microsoft account birth date is different if you're:

  • A child below the statutory age (selected countries - see below for details).

  • An adult or a child above the statutory age.

Any adult with permission to manage a child's account won't see an option to update a child's birthdate if the birthdate indicates the child is already above the statutory age. To update the birthdate for this account, the child must sign in using their own account and follow the steps for Adult accounts.

  1. Sign in to your Microsoft Account and select Your info. Because you're accessing sensitive information, you may be asked to verify your identity.
    Edit your profile

  2. Make your changes and select Save.

If you're trying to change the birthdate for a child over the statutory age, the child must sign in using their own account.

  1. Sign in to your Microsoft Account and select Your info. Because you're accessing sensitive information, you may be asked to verify your identity.
    Edit your profile

  2. Make your changes and select Save.

Only a parent or another adult with permission to manage that child account can update the birthdate for the account of a child under the statutory age.

Note: If you didn’t give parental consent for their account, you won’t be able to change their birthdate. Learn more.

  1. Using the adult Microsoft account, sign in to your account on family.microsoft.com.

  2. Scroll to the bottom of the Your family page, select Manage my child's profile info.

  3. In the Manage permissions page of the child’s account you want to change, at the right, select Edit this child's personal info and then follow the instructions.
