Microsoft Family Safety App empowers you and your family with the ability to develop healthy habits and protect those you love through digital and physical safety. You can rest assured that your family is safe while allowing your children to grow and learn independently.
Your children should have a safe place to go online. To filter out inappropriate apps and games, set parental controls and limit browsing to child-friendly sites on Microsoft Edge.
Your children should be able to manage their screen time. You can set limits on certain apps and games for Android, Xbox, and Windows. You can also use device management to limit screen time across all devices on Windows and Xbox.
Activity reporting can help you understand the digital activities of your family. To start a conversation about online activities, view your children’s activity in a weekly email.
Location sharing allows you to keep track of where your family is. You can also save places you frequent like school and work.
Get location alerts whenever someone leaves or arrives at your location with a Microsoft 365 Family subscription. You can also use Drive Safety to help you develop better driving habits. You can see how your family is driving on the roads, such as how often they use their phones while driving, top speed and how many times they brake hard.
