Microsoft will apparently ban you for taking screenshots of adult-rated games. It seems that the bans are primarily triggered when the clips are shared to your activity feed, which is turned on by default. Luckily, you can turn auto-sharing off, and as a result (hopefully) avoid being banned. Here's how.

How to hide game clips and screenshots on Xbox Live

Just follow this process:

  1. Press the Xbox button on your controller to open the guide.
  2. Move the joystick to the right to get to the System panel.

  3. Select the Settings menu with the 'A' button.
  4. Select Privacy & online safety under Account.

  5. Select Xbox Live privacy.
  6. Select Game content.
  7. Under "Others can see your game clips and screenshots" change the setting to Only me.

How to disable automatic clip sharing

If you don't want to hide everything, you can simply disable automatic sharing and SFW clips manually to avoid Microsoft's ban. Here's how to do that:

  1. Press the Xbox button on your controller to open the guide.
  2. Move the joystick to the right to get to the System panel.

  3. Select the Settings menu with the 'A' button.
  4. Move down to Preferences.
  5. Select Activity feed.

  6. Untick Share clips & screenshots automatically.
