The Microsoft Family Safety app helps empower you and your family to create healthy habits and protect the ones you love with digital and physical safety. Get peace of mind that your family is staying a little safer while giving your kids independence.

Create a safe space for your kids to explore online. Set healthy boundaries to block inappropriate content and set browsing to kid-friendly websites using Microsoft Edge on Windows, Xbox, and Android. Get notified when your kids want to download a more mature app or game from the Microsoft Store with age limits, keeping you in the know and helping to avoid surprises.

Develop healthy digital habits and provide transparency into your family's activities. View your kids’ weekly activity to help start a conversation about online activity. Set device limits across Xbox and Windows. Or if your kids will be on devices longer for things like online learning, set time limits on specific apps or games on Xbox, Windows, or Android.

Stay connected offline with location sharing. Use the family tracker to stay informed on where your family is and share your location. Plus, save frequently visited places like work and school.

Plus, with a Microsoft 365 Family subscription, get location alerts when someone leaves or arrives at their location, and use drive safety to build better habits behind the wheel. Get insights on how your family is doing on the road, including how many times they use their phone while driving, their top speed, and even the number of times they brake hard.

Better than te competitions

Coming from Sonys simile system (web page only, horrible UI), this is much better.

Ikke i nærheden af konkurrenter

Ønsker du familiestyring af dine børns pc, så søg efter en anden udbyder af denne service.

Man skal lede i øst og vest for bare at finde en simpel funktion som “tillad altid”.
Nogle indstillinger skal foretages i appen andre kun kun findes ved at logge ind på en webbrowser.
Total forvirrende. Kort sagt: en ommer

Jeg vil give det samme rating som Windows Vista.
