- How to keep kids safe online.
If you have young children who use a PC at home there are a number of steps which you can take to keep them safe and which allow you to monitor the web sites that they are browsing. One of the easiest way is to set up ” Microsoft family safety” which is a suite of free programs which can help you restrict and monitor your children’s online activity.
How Family Safety works
Just like on a sports team, the different players in Family Safety and Windows make up a team that works together. The players are:
- The Family Safety Filter. Software you install and set up on each computer your kids use. It monitors your kids using safety settings that you select.
- The Family Safety website. Where you choose and manage all the settings for each family member and view their activity reports. You can create settings on the website once and then they’ll apply to every computer that you’ve installed the Family Safety Filter on.
- Windows Parental Controls. Turned on in Windows when you use Family Safety. You can use Windows Parental Controls to set up more safety settings for your kids’ computers. For more info on how to set up Windows Parental Controls.
