Filter inappropriate apps and games on the Family Safety app

You can set up content filters for apps and games on Windows 10 and Xbox from the Family Safety app. Here’s how:

  1. Sign in to your account in the Family Safety app.

  2. Find your family member, then select their name > Content filters > Apps and games.

  3. Tap Allow apps and games rated if you want to change the default age. Anything over the content ratings you’ve decided on will need your approval before it’s used.

  4. When they ask to use a blocked app or game, you can approve it and add it to the Always allowed list, or add something they use to the Never allowed list.
