Is it possible to set your console to make you automatically appear offline?

I have an acquaintance who is on his 360 constantly, but I'm trying to avoid him. I don't want him to see me log into Xbox Live and then try to call me.

I really wish there was a way but there isn't.

The only thing you can do is appear offline, but that just let's them know that you're online but appearing offline....

Kind of. You need to turn off auto sign in, then go to online pressense settings and select appear offline then go sign in.

Turn on your xbox, make sure auto log In is turned off. Appear offline before you sign it and when you sign it it will already be appearing offline and it won't say you signed in.

Not automatically, no.

But you can set it to appear offline before signing in.

Guide button, scroll all the way to the right, preferences, then set online status to appear offline.

Not through your console directly, but it can be done through your profile on xbox.com. I can't remember exactly, but I'm sure you'll find it under your user preferences. I did it once through from the site and have appeared as if I'm never online since.

Settings > Privacy > Change settings > Customize > Online status > Blocked.

Now you'll be "Offline" until you change it back.

And yes that means even if you turn your xbox off and then on again and sign in you'll still appear "Offline" without having to change any settings again. And it's all done on your xbox, not on xbox.

Yeah but appearing Offline is a huge red flag of saying that you are actually Online
