Set up family features

You can help your kids stay safe online by setting up child accounts for them and adding them to your family at When you add them to your family you can make sure that they don't see any websites, apps, or games that are inappropriate for their age. You can view reports of their online activity, and help them establish good habits by setting up limits on how long and when they can be spending time with their screens. The easiest way to get started is to get your child set up with a Microsoft account, add them to your family, and then have them sign in to Windows with that same Microsoft account.
