If you're sharing a Windows 10 device with your kids, letting them sign in with their own accounts will give them the freedom to explore safely while you're still able to set up appropriate age restrictions and time limits, and make sure they're not visiting any websites or using any apps or games that aren't right for them. And even if your child has their own device, when they sign in with a Microsoft account that's part of your family, you can rest assured that the family settings you've set up for them will be applied to any Windows 10 device they sign in to.
If your PC is connected to a domain, family features might not be available. Check with your system admin.
Is your child too young to remember a typed password? You might want to set up a picture password for them, so they can sign in using a favorite photo instead.
If your child already has a user account on your PC, you can add them to your family.
Learn how to Set the right limits for your child.
