Microsoft announced key changes to the user agreement, which will come into force on May 1, 2018. From this day on, those who use profane language face losing access to their accounts.

Changes providing for punishment for the use of offensive language have been made to the “Rules of Conduct” section.

Microsoft Users agree not to “publicly display or use the Services to send inappropriate content or materials (including, for example, nudity, bestiality, pornography, offensive language, violence or criminal activity) or content or materials that are illegal local legislation."


For violation of these terms, the company may, at its sole discretion, terminate a user's access to the Services or terminate the Microsoft account altogether. The company also reserves the right to block the exchange of incoming or outgoing information (for example, email messages, file sharing or instant messages). And remove or refuse to post user content for any reason.

Penalties for violating the Rules of Conduct also apply to those who use the Xbox Services. Using offensive language may result in suspension or suspension of the Services, including loss of content licenses, Xbox Gold membership, and Microsoft account balances associated with the suspended account.

Thus, the use of swear words will be prohibited in all programs. However, it is not specified which words will be considered offensive.

In addition, it is reported that the company reserves the right to block the violator’s access to the services, or delete his accounts. At the same time, company employees have the right to view personal correspondence, as well as personal data of the offender.
