The Microsoft Family Safety app helps empower you and your family to create healthy habits and protect the ones you love with digital and physical safety. Get peace of mind that your family is staying a little safer while giving your kids independence to learn and grow.
Create a safe space for your kids to explore online. Set parental controls to filter inappropriate apps, and games and set browsing to kid-friendly websites on Microsoft Edge.
Help your kids balance their screen time activity. Set limits for specific apps and games on Android, Xbox, or Windows. Or use device management to set screen time limits across devices on Xbox and Windows.
Set activity monitors to better understand your family's digital activity. View your kids’ activity in a weekly email to help start a conversation about online activity.
Use location sharing to stay connected offline. Use the family tracker to stay informed on where your family is and share your location. Plus, save frequently visited places like work and school.
With a Microsoft 365 Family subscription, get location alerts when someone leaves or arrives at their location, and use drive safety to build better habits behind the wheel. Get insights on how your family is doing on the road, including how many times they use their phone while driving, their top speed, and even the number of times they brake hard.
With Microsoft Family Safety, you can set appropriate filters, limits, and permissions that are right for your family.
