This is a step by step guide on how to properly & safely secure a gamertag/account & extra information.


Extra information before making a purchase;

If you're buying a gamertag be sure to remember, if it has been signed into using a console then if they plan to scam they can pull it back (take back the account using the console ID's) so make sure you're buying from someone who's trustworthy or to a degree of trust. Make sure it has either been removed from the list of devices. Tutorial on how to do this is below.

1. Sign into the account through this link: account.microsoft.com

2. Click under "Devices" for "Manage"

3. If a console shows click "Show Details"

4. Below the console will have "Manage" the click "Remove Xbox" as shown

Now for the securing part, this is where it comes down to properly securing. If you wish to add further security, I'd suggest adding 2 Factor verification or even using an app that saves & protects your information.

1. Once signed into your account you've purchased, click the drop down menu located on the top left of the screen.

2. Select/click on the tab "Security".

3. Scroll down to "Security contact info" & select "Update my info".

4. This is the slightly difficult part, you'll need to contact the seller in order to obtain a security code (if it asks for one)

5. Once on this part, click on "add security info" (make sure that you have permanent access to this email or number you're going to use. Follow the steps it takes you through.

6. Make sure to remove the previous owners details and replace it with your details. Again, follow the instructions on site (verifying codes etc)

*Optional but recommended* - Return to the the previous page and find "More Security options" & click the + Icon

* Manage sign in options - Make sure your email is primary & the previous is no longer on there.

* Enable 2 Step Authorisation if you wish.

* Turn off all existing apps, then replace if you wish.

* Remove all trusted devices, again I highly recommend.



Last step & final instructions, remove any billing information. Again, this can be potentially used to pull back the account so it's import to remove & replace with your own information. Simply follow this link and go from there;

account.microsoft.com/billing/addresses#/


account.microsoft.com/billing/pay...rosoft.com

Any information regarding how to safely swap an OG gamertag from one account to another, without it being stolen in between?

I can't post sensitive information like that - Software/tools or anything related. This is just to help people selling/buying low end gamertags. Sorry my man.

You should also state that you should go "Security -> More Security Options -> Recovery Code -> Generate New Recovery Code"

most people forget this but with that code they have access to change anyting they want on the account.
Ex: Alias Email, Backup Phone, Backup Email, and Password.
