Set the right limits for your child

Once you've added a child to your family, you can make sure that adult websites are blocked, or specify just which sites you want your kids to see. You can also make sure they can only use apps and games that are appropriate for their age, and you can set screen time limits to make sure they're not spending too much time in the virtual world. Kids can ask your permission to keep browsing when their time is up, or to see or download anything that's blocked—together, you can decide the level of restriction that's right for them.

You can set and manage all these limits at Sign in with your Microsoft account, select the name of the child whose settings you want to change, and follow the instructions from there.
