Microsoft Bans Xbox One Users Temporarily For Swearing On Skype

Posted Nov 25, 2013

Microsoft Corporation is banning Xbox One users from using certain apps if they swear, but the bans are temporary.  Several Xbox One users have reported that their console banned them from using Upload Studio and Skype after swearing. The ban takes place if users say certain words when uploading gameplay clips to SkyDrive or on private Skype video calls. However, you can still upload clips from games where the in-game characters use profanity without getting banned.  Some of the clips tested were in the game “Battlefield 4.” Some of the bans were lifted after 24 hours.
