Microsoft unveils Family Safety app—to help protect what matters most

(U.S.) – The Microsoft Family Safety app, designed to help you protect your family’s digital and physical safety, started to roll out this week on iOS and Android.

So, what can this app do and how can it help keep your family safer online?

Develop healthy digital habits

Get info about your family’s digital activity so you can have a conversation about its meaning. Parents and kids can both view kids’ activity reports of screen time, top websites visited, and terms kids are searching for online.

  • Activity summaries
  • Weekly email reports

Find screen time balance

Set device limits across Xbox and Windows. Or if your kids will be on devices longer for things like online learning, set time limits on specific apps or games on Xbox, Windows, and Android.

  • Apps and game limits
  • Device limits
  • Screen time requests

Explore safely with content filters

Create a safe space for your kids to explore online. Set healthy boundaries to block inappropriate apps and games and set browsing to kid-friendly websites using Microsoft Edge on Xbox, Windows, and Android.

  • Apps and game filters
  • Web and search filters
  • Content filter requests

Locate your loved ones

Stay connected even when you’re apart. See loved ones on a map with location sharing and save places they visit most to know where family members are at a glance.

  • Location sharing
  • Saved places

The best part, the app is FREE!
