Questions Related to Teen Accounts

Honored Guest

Hi there,

i just wanted to ask some questions about Teen Accounts on Meta.

1st question/issue: I just linked my account as a parental account for my 15 year old son who has already had an account that has been activated for +-3 years. Why did i do that you may ask? Because i got him some gift cards for him to buy a game on his Q2 which is rated 18+ (a shooter) and it says that the game is rated No Youth. Can i allow him to buy it and if i can how do i do that? I even saw that he could request me to buy it when he presses on the price value to buy the game but there isn't anything there in his headset and on the app.

Question 2: (Related to Question 1) Can i theoretically gift him the game and it will still show up on his Q2?

Question/issue 3: I turned off for him that he needs to ask me for permission to play games but everytime i close out of that tab and tap back into it, it still shows that i have the option selected? Or should i just wait until the weekend and try again because maybe it still hasn't updated to the servers?

Hello there @Tom5nicole! We appreciate you bringing these questions to us, and we would love to add some clarity. Your son will not be able to play or have access to any games that are outside of his age range. You will also not be able to gift him any game or app that is outside his age range.
