Keeping your kids safer online requires more than managing screen time. Norton Family helps you supervise and manage your kids’ online activities.
• Helps you manage your child’s remote learning environment, so you can keep your child focused on schoolwork during the school day.
• It helps block unsuitable sites while your kids are surfing the Internet
• Let’s you see what websites they’re visiting
• Let’s you see what they’re searching for, and so much more…
And while Norton Family lets you set online time limits, it also helps you start open and ongoing conversations about how to build safe and smart online habits. As a parent, it’s important to have insight into what your kids are doing. Our helpful tools allow you to monitor kids’ online activities at a glance or be notified by email alerts, so you know when it’s time to talk.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: To use the features of Norton Family on your family’s iOS devices, this Norton Family app should first be installed on your child’s iOS device. Parents can configure household policies, manage alerts and reports from family.norton.com. To do this on iOS devices, please download the Norton Family for Parents app.
Help your kids explore, learn, and enjoy their connected world more safely with the following features:
School Time: Remote learning requires the internet, so pausing the internet on your child’s device is not an option. Norton Family School Time is a feature to help parents manage their child’s remote learning environment, so you can keep your child focused on schoolwork and avoid other internet distractions during the school day.
Web Supervision: Let your kids explore the Web freely, with tools that help you block unsuitable websites while keeping you in the know about which sites they’re visiting.
Time Supervision: Stay on top of how much time your kids spend on their devices.
Search Supervision: See words, terms, and phrases your kids are searching for to gain insights into their interests and help protect them from inappropriate content.
Video Supervision*: See a list of the YouTube videos your kids watch on their PCs or iOS devices and even view a snippet of each video, so you know when you need to talk.
Instant Lock: Parents can help kids take a break by locking the device so they can re-focus, or join the family at dinner. Individual devices can be unlocked with a PIN. Parents and children can still contact each other while the device is in lock mode.
Email Alerts: Receive an email when your kids attempt to visit a blocked site so that you can start a conversation about appropriate content.
Access Request: Open the lines of communication by enabling your kids to send you a note from within Norton Family if they disagree with a blocked site or a house rule.
Monthly/Weekly Reports: Opt to receive detailed reports of what your kids are doing online, right in your email in-box.

Child can simply delete the app and no notification is sent. If child has an iPhone you can go on settings>general>restrictions, and set website restrictions up with a passcode only you know and this works far better and the child can still use safari. Don’t waste your money when iPhones have this feature for free and far superior.
I liked the concept and it just does not work. I’m pretty shocked a major corporation is willing to put something on the market so poor.
It took me 3 days to find out that the online backup storage they had advertised was not available on a Mac. They simply mis sold that bit of the product.
Online help of any kind is not good enough for such a complex product. For example instructions are in many places outdated.
I’ve just tested the child safety bit. I fortunately tested this before making my daughters use it. In addition to protecting them from doing anything nefarious it protects them from doing their homework. If I wanted to stop them doing anything on the internet then I would just ban them
I keep getting into awful loops along the lines of Norton protection stopping Norton updates.
Some bits look promising- if they keep working

Hello, Child safety with Norton Family protects the child as defined in the house rules by the parent. You can set time schedules as required and allow/deny websites such that the child can browse the internet safely and complete their homework.
