360 Friends List Privacy

Just a reminder: the new dashboard update for the Xbox 360 will add a feature called 'Friends of Friends'. This will let other people browse your list of friends. If you'd prefer to keep things private before the update goes live, you need to follow these instructions:

Login to www.xbox.com/fof and select one of the three options available for your Gamertag:

  • Everyone (only available to members 18 and older)
  • Friends only (available to members 13 and older)
  • Blocked (available to all members, and automatic for anyone under the age of 13)

I personally don't mind having folks look over my friends list, but I know some people take privacy very seriously. Microsoft is defaulting all accounts to the "Everyone" setting, so update your settings tonight.
