Drive safety is a great way to gain insight and introduce discussions about safe driving habits in your family group. Encourage family members to enable drive safety through the Microsoft Family Safety app on their mobile phones to view a driving summary and up to two weeks of individual drive details, including route maps and the following: 

  • Top speed: fastest speed traveled during trip

  • Phone use: detected use of phone during drive, duration of use

  • Hard braking: vehicle suddenly slows down

  • Fast acceleration: vehicle suddenly speeds up

Access this information in your Family Safety app and on family.microsoft.com
