How can I change or remove the family manager on my PS4? Because I'd like to use a different account with a different region but my current family manager would not allow it. Please help!

If you have someone in your household who is the Family Manager on your PS4, you'll need to speak to them in regards to allowing new account creation on your console. If you cannot create a new account at the moment, that means the Family Manager has set restrictions on the PS4 to prevent this. There is no way to change or delete a Family Manager account if you are not the owner of the account.

Actually, I own the current Family Manager account. And I want to get rid of the current Family Manager account so I can use my other account from

a different region and assign it as the new Family Manager. Tho I do not know how to do it, and if it is even possible.

Okay I understand, do you have anychild family members attached to your Family Manager account? You can't assign child accounts to a new family manager I'm afraid, but you'll be able to use any other account on the console if you activate it as the primary PS4.

I cannot see how to remove the 'Family Manager' designation from my account.

How can I do this so I can change the 'Family Manager' to another account? Neither are sub accounts or child accounts.

 

Thanks.

You can never change the Family Manager.  I tried doing a restore to Default settings.  I tried doing both a Quick and Full PS4 initializing and neither worked.  I think anytime a user that USED to be the Family Manager logs into the PS4 they automatically become the Family Manager.  The only way to stop it is to not allow the user that used to be the family manager to log in.

My son's account was assigned family manager as default when he set up his account since he was the only one on the account. I have since added myself as the parent on the account and would like to change the family manager to myself so I can set limits. Is that possible?

This should not be listed as an Accepted Solution. In my case, I am the "Family Manager." Because your system is so difficult to navigate, my son purchased FortNite but associated with my account instead of his own subaccount. Now in order to use the new parental controls, I need to establish my wife as the Family Manager so that he can continue to play FortNite under my user name.

This solution isn't what is required. When we bought the PS4 my son was added as the user. He has now accumulated games, credits, points etc so we cannot delete his account. I have set myself up as the family manager on my account and he has accepted. However, I cannot add him as a 'child' to my account and he still has control. There must be a solution, or one is needed, to switch family manager. Please help PS.
