If your child’s account was set up successfully, your parental control page should look like this, with an entry for each child under your supervision: The menu options on the right are where you can monitor each child’s activity and set parental control limits.
While there are some weaknesses in the web filtering and application control system Microsoft uses, Windows 10 parental controls do have the advantage of applying across multiple devices.
Users can't, for example, switch to their tablet after using up their screen time on the family PC – any device accessed through your child's account will be subject to the same limitations.
Otherwise, you can send confirmation emails to an address generated specifically for the setup process.
Microsoft Family's parental control system requires Microsoft accounts for at least one parent and one child.
With Windows 10 parental controls, you can fine-tune which content is available through the Windows and Xbox stores by specifying an age range for your child's account.
(This is set to your child's calendar age by default, but can be adjusted as you think best.) Only material rated as appropriate for that age range will be available for download.
Windows Parental Controls block the use of any non-Microsoft browser by default, but this is less than ideal – computer security professionals routinely rate Internet Explorer as the least secure of the six most common web browsers.
