View and edit Console Safety Settings for your Xbox 360 console



Before you can save any Console Safety Settings, you must create and enter a four-button pass code and a secret question secret answer.
Important Console Safety settings apply to everyone who uses your Xbox 360 console. You can't have different settings for different players.

To edit Console Safety settings

  1. Go to My Xbox.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If you are an Xbox LIVE Family Pack subscriber, select Family Center.
    • If you are not a family pack subscriber, select Family Settings.

      Tip Not seeing Family Center or Family Settings? You might be using an older version of the console software.
      1. Go to My Xbox, select System Settings.
      2. Select Family Settings, and then select Console Controls.
  3. Set restrictions on the following settings:
    Family Setting/Console SafetyDescription
    Game Ratings
    • Restrict which games can be played based on their ratings under the rating classification for your region.
    • Select the highest rating you want to allow.
    • Higher ratings require the pass code.
    Exemptions
    Available for the Xbox 360 Dashboard released in Fall 2010. Family Settings or Family Center will appear in My Xbox.
    • When you override a game restriction using your pass code, you are asked if you want to add an exemption to the Game Rating section. After the exception is set, no one on the console has to use a pass code to play the game.
    • You can set exceptions for up to 20 games.
    • Exemptions can be removed within Console Safety Settings, Game Exemptions
    Movie Ratings/TV Ratings
    • Restrict the playback of movies and TV shows based on their ratings under the rating classification for your region.
    • Select the highest rating you want to allow.
    • Higher ratings require the pass code.
      Note Only movies that are encoded with proper settings can be restricted.
    Explicit/Unrated Content
    • Restrict the playback of content that is rated explicit or that is unrated. Content can be below a rating setting under Movie/TV/Game but still be rated as explicit.
    Xbox LIVE Access/Xbox LIVE Membership Creation
    • Block access to Xbox LIVE.
    • Block anyone from creating an Xbox LIVE account. You can still use existing profiles.
  4. Select Save and Exit. If you have not created a pass code, you are prompted to create one before you can save.

What is the Family Timer?

  • Use the Family Timer setting to manage how much your family uses the console on a daily or weekly basis.

    Example You can set the console to allow two hours of play per day. After those two hours, no one can use the console again within that 24-hour period, unless you grant additional time.
  • A daily timer resets at midnight, and a weekly timer resets Sunday at midnight.
  • Override the family timer with the pass code. The pass code allows you to continue using the console after the time limit is reached. You can add more time or suspend the timer altogether until the next time the console is shut down.
Tip Remember to set the clock in the Family Timer to the current time and time zone. If you're on Xbox LIVE, the console time is set automatically, but you might need to reset the time zone.

To set the Family Timer

Note You must have a pass code to complete this procedure.
  1. Go to My Xbox.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If you are an Xbox LIVE Family Pack subscriber, select Family Center.
    • If you are not a family pack subscriber, select Family Settings.
    Tip Not seeing Family Center or Family Settings? You might be using an older version of the console software.
    1. Go to My Xbox, select System Settings.
    2. Select Family Settings, and then select Console Controls.

  1. On your controller, enter your four-button pass code by pressing XY, the triggers, the bumpers, and the directional pad.
  2. Select Family Timer, and then select Daily or Weekly for the time range.
  3. Move the left stick to increase or decrease the time limit for the selected time period, then select Continue.
  4. Select Done.
  5. Select Yes, save changes.

  7. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick
    question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your head before writing. I've had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thank you!

  12. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not
    100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
