When a new console launches, it comes with a digital content library of some great games, but it also comes with multiple xbox accounts that you can use for live games. This is what we call “Live” or “Xbox Live” access to play online multiplayer games.

How to deactivate an Xbox One account permanently
Reasons why you might want to remove an Xbox One account
If you do not want the account, you might want to remove it from your Xbox One console and from other consoles. If you are giving the Xbox One console away or selling it, there is no reason to keep your account tied to the console. You may also wish to remove the account if someone else will access the Xbox One console, because the account will become locked out preventing users from playing games, viewing images and watching movies.
You will not be able to remove an account from the Xbox One console if you have a Microsoft or guest account. If you log in to an Xbox Live account on your console and the profile is not linked to an Xbox Live Gold membership, then you have a Microsoft account. Guest accounts are available with some Xbox Live Gold packages. Guests can play multiplayer games online and watch Netflix but they do not have access to your games library and cannot use download content or achievements.

Tips for keeping your account safe and secure
Do not give your account to anyone else. If you do, they will have a way to play games or watch movies as well as you. Be sure to keep the password and email or phone number that was associated with the account. Make sure the email you choose has the same address in it, and has not been used elsewhere. If you have a friend that you want to give your old Xbox One console to, ask for their Xbox Live Gamertag so that you can send them the gifts that you earned in games. That way they could get some of the money back and give you something cool in return.
Keep your password secret. A lot of people think that you should tell your friends and family about the password, but depending on who you ask, it may get leaked to them by accident.
Don’t use the same password twice. Using the same password two times is a good way to show people how hard it is to remember passwords. If they ask you for the passwords, say no and never give them any information. This will only make people want them more.
Don’t give account information to your friends. Don’t give out the password to anyone other than your Xbox Live friends. If you want to tell someone else about your account, go through Xbox Live and tell them directly on the Xbox One’s console. Don’t email or Skype with them or anything.
