There are two ways to change your passkey in Xbox Series X/S and one way to change your password.

Because your Microsoft account is linked to your e-mail account, you must change your e-mail password to change your Xbox password. To change your passkey, there are two methods listed below.

If you remember your passkey to Xbox

  • Make sure you’re on the main menu of your console.
  • Press the Xbox button in the middle of your controller.
  • A new menu will appear to the left.
  • Move to the tab to the very right, which has your account picture.
  • Go to Settings.
