Keep your kids safer on the PC

Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1


This tutorial shows you how to use Family Safety. You can create accounts for your kids and turn on Family Safety monitoring, choose the additional limits and permissions you want your kids to have, and interpret the activity reports you get about their PC use with confidence.

If you've ever wondered what your kids are up to on the PC and online, Family Safety can help. Family Safety lets you know which websites your kids have visited and which apps and games they've used. You can also choose to block or allow specific websites or other content, and even limit the amount of time they can spend on the PC. Now you'll have more time to find out what else they're up to. With Windows, you can help your kids use the PC responsibly.

Next: Turn on Family Safety for your child's account
