I opened a Microsoft account and by mistake I put my dob in

Customer Question

I opened a Microsoft account and by mistake I put my dob in wrong. When I wanted to use it to get an app it said I needed parent's permission. Could I set it up again?

Hello June! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Does it give you any option when showing that you need parent's permission?

 

Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8?

Can we do a remote session, so we can chat, and I will be able to help you directly?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

I got a windows phone and this is where I tried to create a Microsoft account. When I try to download an app it says you need a parents permission. The only 2 options it gives you are 'parent sign in' and 'cancel'

And you do not want to use another microsoft account?

Are you on a windows or computer now?

Can we do a remote session, so we can chat, and I will be able to help you directly?

When it gives you 'parent sign in', can you please sign in your other microsoft account (hotmail / outlook / live email address), and confirm, then see if it works? Thank you
