Switch Parental Controls - HELP NEEDED!!
« on: March 27, 2020, 08:53:54 PM »
Hey everyone,

I recently got Animal Crossing for the Switch, mostly for my daughter to play.
I also got the Nintendo Online account so she could play online with her sisters at her mom's house during this whole lockdown situation.

my issue right now is that I never actually setup her online account with a password and everything as I wasn't ready for her to actually be online without me present.
So while I was at work, she called her sisters and they setup her online account over the phone and now her online account is tied to the Switch account at her mom's house, but on my Switch.

How can I disconnect her account from that account and connect it on to my account for her here instead?

Nintendo's always 2 steps behind policies forced me to delete my daughters account and (according to them) all the saves that we've had had on there under her profile for the last 1-2 years just because i wasn't able to log her out of the account that the (restrictive) parental controls should've stopped her from doing in the first place..... imo

luckily, she wasn't far into AC, and I got to keep her island since she created me in it and I started playing it with her already.

I thought you could disconnect accounts from Switches? Or because she is a child account there is a special restriction? Though resetting the account is a good excuse to put you as the island rep ;)

We're still trying to work around that Island Rep issue...
Trying to avoid restarting after the initial effort we've already input. Lol

I just found out that me deleting her profile created on my switch, that was logged into by the profile on her moms switch, deleted her profile on BOTH switches.....

which means the account manager, her sister, needs to reactivate her account from her moms end, so that I can log back we can try to log back into the same account on this end.

We'll have to wait till tomorrow to see if that works tho.
