Parental Controls

Young players (aged under 13, or their country’s age of digital consent) will need to link their account with a parent, guardian, or other responsible adult’s (responsible adult) account in order to access certain features, such as joining text or voice chat. The parent, guardian or other responsible adult needs to have a account and verify that they are an adult.

We have partnered with Kids Web Services (KWS) to provide free parental verification.

  • To start the process, players or their responsible adult should visit Players can also send their responsible adult an invite link, which will be active for a short amount of time.
  • The responsible adult will then need to complete KWS parental verification. They can choose to provide a face scan, a credit or debit card number, or the last four digits of their social security number. This verification is completely managed by KWS, and we (Bungie) will only receive a verification result. We do not receive copies of any information you provide.
  • If a responsible adult doesn’t pass KWS verification, they will need to go back to and restart the process.
  • If the responsible adult passes KWS verification, they can link their own account to their child’s account after verification with KWS. The responsible adult will then be redirected to the Parental Control page where they can make changes to the player’s settings, such as allowing voice chat, text chat, and purchases.


  • A young player can only be assigned to one responsible adult at a time.
  • Responsible adults can unlink a child’s account from their own account at any time, which will result in the child's account returning to their previous settings if they aren't yet an adult.
  • Child accounts can unlink a responsible adult's account from their own account at any time.

I entered the wrong information. How can I change it?

Why can't I purchase Silver?

Due to these requirements, young players are unable to purchase additional Silver for their Destiny accounts. If their Destiny accounts already have Silver, they can still use that Silver to purchase items in the Eververse Store. Young players are also still able to accrue and spend Bright Dust.
