    Xbox LIVE GOLD + da kidz

    My boys each have an Xbox One and want to play Fortnite. If I get them set up with a GOLD account each can I set that up so it allows them to play online but restricts communication from people they don't know?

    I just need some clear infor before I pull the trigger on a couple of GOLD subs ... and the Microsoft help pages are a bit hit & miss.

    You can customise all sorts of options around online communications on the Xbox. I look after my nephews account and restrict most things to his friends list only and have sharing blocked.

    Have a look at this section of the Xbox support pages.

    I have a gold account for me and then they both have silver accounts. I tell them what they can and can't do. If I catch them breaking the rules, no more fortnite etc. Only voice comms with people they know in RL etc.

    Thanks Charles. I wasn't even aware gold+silver+silver and all playing online was possible (I'm so behind on all things Microsoft tbh). I'll see how 6 months of gold takes, fine tuning it along the way ... then it's good to know silver might be an option, particularly for our youngest (9) ... I'll be keeping a close eye on things.

    Check out family game sharing as well. By setting the home console as each others it's possible for two people to play online with one copy of a game, digital of course.

    This is down to MS allowing gold to be shared with everyone on a home console, and that owner to play remotely on another unit provided they are online.

    It sounds confusing but it's surprisingly simple and easy to do. Just Google it for a better explanation.

    I guess it doesn't matter too much when the game is free to play... But could save you a bit in future if they want to buy any games and play together.
