Help keep your family safe online and offline with Microsoft Family Safety. The Microsoft Family Safety app empowers you to help protect your loved ones with digital safety and location sharing.

Facilitate a conversation with your kids about developing healthy habits online and in the real world. Get peace of mind that your family is staying a little safe while giving your kids independence to learn and grow with Microsoft Family Safety.

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.

Help your kids balance their screen time 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. Now when you say only one hour of a certain game, that really means one hour of that game—whether that’s being played on a Windows, Xbox, or Android. And if they run out of screen time, they can ask for more with screen time requests.

Develop healthy digital habits and provide transparency into your family's activities. View your kids’ activity in a weekly email to help start a conversation about online activity or view the weekly activity log in the app.

Stay connected offline with location sharing. Use location tracking to see where your family members are on a map and save frequently visited places like work and home.

With Microsoft Family Safety, you can work with your family to set appropriate filters, limits, and permissions that are right for your loved ones. Talk to your family about their online usage and create a safe space for your kids to explore.

Been waiting for this app for a long time

Works very well, exactly like on the website. The only downside is that it stays logged in even when the app is closed and there is no security to reuse it. I mean my kids could easily access it once they get through on my phone. Face ID would be perfect for it.

Not granular enough

It’s ok I guess, but I could almost as easily just log into the site or refer to my weekly report email. How about things I really need - like my son being able to appear offline by default, or again being able to start parties that are invite only by default. How about preventing kids from sending invites more than once every 30 secs to same person?These would be genuinely useful controls for a parent. Let me worry about the time my kids spend online, and you focus on giving me tools to keep them safe from strangers and also constant social pressure to be “in the group”

Functionality is lacking

I’ve been using family safety via the web for some time. On the web you get a wealth of information on usage however after being conned to download the app I’m underwhelmed. There is virtually NO useful information given and in comparison to what’s on offer over the website it’s just not worth downloading! I thought Microsoft were world leaders in software....seemingly not! I’m not sure why people are rating the app so highly in general, I can only assume that the masses are unable to assimilate the superior information given on the web. Big thumbs down!
