How do I turn off require approval for every purchase?

Answered by Cody Janus

To turn off the requirement for approval on every purchase, you will need to sign in to your Family page using an adult Microsoft account. Once signed in, follow these steps:

1. Family page settings: Look for the option to access the settings for your Family page. This is usually located in the account or profile settings section.

2. Find the child’s name: In the Family page settings, locate the name of the child for whom you want to disable the approval requirement. This will typically be listed under the “Family members” or “Children” section.

3. Select More options: Once you have found the child’s name, click on “More options” or a similar link/button next to their name. This will open a dropdown menu with additional settings.

4. Go to Spending settings: In the dropdown menu, look for an option related to spending or purchases. It might be labeled as “Spending settings,” “Purchase controls,” or something similar. Click on it to access the spending settings for the child.

5. Disable approval requirement: Within the spending settings, you should see a section called “Ask to buy” or “Purchase approval.” Under this section, you will find a toggle or switch to enable or disable the requirement for organizer approval on purchases made by the child.

6. Switch off approval requirement: Locate the toggle or switch that controls the approval requirement and switch it to the “Off” position. This will disable the need for organizer approval for every purchase made by the child.

7. Save changes: Once you have turned off the approval requirement, make sure to save your changes. Look for a “Save,” “Apply,” or “Done” button usually found at the bottom of the page.

By following these steps, you should be able to turn off the requirement for approval on every purchase for the specified child on your Family page.

Please note that the exact steps and terminology may vary slightly depending on the platform or device you are using. It’s always a good idea to refer to the official documentation or support resources provided by Microsoft for more specific instructions tailored to your situation.
