ou can use a pass code - a button sequence on your controller - to control access to your Xbox Live account. Once the pass code is set, anyone who wants to use your profile must enter the pass code before signing into Xbox Live.
  1. Go to Settings, select Account and then select Account Security.
  2. Select Pass Code.
  3. On your controller, enter a four-button code by pressing X, Y, the triggers, the bumpers and the directional pad.
  4. Enter your code again to confirm it.

Please everyone that comes across my info take a few seconds of your time to rate my solution which you can select at the bottom of my answer Was this solution helpful? YES or NO :)... As i have taken time to answer your question the best i can Thank You......



If children use your Xbox console, you can set a pass code to control access to features and options. Because Family Settings exist for both the console and for Xbox LIVE accounts, you can set pass codes for both.
Here you can learn how to:
Set an Xbox LIVE Pass Code
When you set an Xbox LIVE pass code for your profile, anyone who wants to use that profile will need to enter the pass code before signing in to Xbox LIVE.

To set an Xbox LIVE pass code:
  1. Go to My Xbox and open your profile.
  2. Select Manage Account, Xbox LIVE Pass Code.
  3. Enter a four-button code using the X andY buttons, triggers, bumpers, and directional pad on your controller.
  4. Confirm your code by entering it again.
To reset your pass code, repeat this procedure at any time. (You will have to enter your original Xbox LIVE pass code before you can create a new one.)


Set a Family Settings Pass Code
When you create a Family Settings pass code, anyone who wants to change family settings on your console will need to enter the pass code first.

You can also use your Family Settings pass code to override game and movie settings if you (or those with whom you share your pass code) want to play games or watch DVD movies that your console settings normally block.
For example, you could give the pass code to your 18-year-old so that she can watch R-rated movies that your younger child is not allowed to see.
To set a pass code for your console:
  1. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Family Settings, Console Controls.
  3. Select Set Pass Code.
  4. Select Pass Code, then enter a four-button code using the X and Y buttons, triggers, bumpers, and directional pad on your controller.
  5. Confirm your code by entering it again.
  6. Choose a pass code reset question.
  7. Select Pass Code Reset Answer and enter your answer using either your Xbox 360 controller or a standard USB computer keyboard plugged into a controller port on your console.
  8. Select Done from the Set Pass Code screen, then select Done once more from the Console Controls screen. When prompted, select Yes, save changes to put your new settings into effect.
To reset your pass code, repeat this procedure at any time.
Reset a Forgotten Pass Code
To reset your pass code after you've forgotten it:
  1. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Family Settings, Console Controls.
  3. Enter an incorrect pass code.
  4. You'll be told that your pass code is incorrect. SelectReset pass code.
  5. You'll then be shown your pass code question and asked to answer it.
  6. Set a new pass code, following the directions in the previous section.
If you've forgotten the answer to your pass-code reset question as well as your pass code, call Xbox Customer Support at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269).

Forgot my xbox live pass code can you help?


you have to recover your gamertag. I read your question and set a passcode on my xbox and tried this myself. click on recover gamertag and fill in your windows live ID and password. This doesn't totally solve the problem. You will have to do this everytime you want to log into live. You can try to do a hard rest. This will put the console back into the factory defaults. I'm not sure what this will do or how it will effect your gamesaves.

Go to the system info screen under console settings. HIt Left trigger, Right trigger, x, y, Left bumper, Right bumper, up, left bumper, left bumper, X.
You have to enter the combo quickly for it to work. If you are using the live pass code to keep kids or roommates off of the xbox and you do finally remember what it is I would suggest writing it down on a small piece of paper and hiding it behind the face plate or under the HDD.

Hope this helps, please remember to vote
Thanks
