Q. How can I hide my Xbox Live status from other people?

A. If you want to play Xbox in the middle of the day instead of working and you don't want people to see, you can log on to Xbox Live but set your status to offline so people can't see.

  1. Push the Xbox guide button on the controller (the big X button).
  2. Navigate to the Settings menu (push right twice).
  3. Select Preferences.
  4. Select Online Status.
  5. Set the Xbox LIVE status to Appear Offline.
  6. Setting Xbox Live to Offline mode

  7. Push the B button (back) to get back to the main Xbox screen.

You're now on Xbox Live, but no one can see you.
