Microsoft Family Safety
Establishing a family group is an easy, effective way to encourage healthy online habits and manage busy schedules. A family group is a set of individuals connected through the Microsoft Family Safety app on their Windows, Xbox, or mobile devices.
No two families are the same – and neither are family group experiences. Learn which family group roles can suit your group best! Designate a family organizer to establish screen time limits or view several different family members’ locations at once. No matter which roles, features, or devices you use, family group settings can be tailored to fit every dynamic.
websites and searches in Microsoft Edge
Always allow educational websites
You can now allow educational websites for your family members on devices with Microsoft Edge. These are websites that may be needed for remote learning, completing homework or for after-school enhancement. They can always visit an AI-generated list of educational websites that they may need for school.
If there are educational websites that you don’t want Kasper to see, you can add websites to their Blocked sites list. If there are educational websites that we did not detect, you can add websites to Kasper’s Allowed sites list.
Set screen time limits across devices
Screen time limits in Microsoft Family Safety are a great way to balance online habits within your family group. Decide when and for how long family members can use their connected Windows, Xbox, and mobile devices. Limits can be as specific as you need them to be – use a different schedule daily or the same one all week. Adjust as you go by allowing more time or deciding when time’s up. You can even set limits on specific devices!
