Meet Family Safety in Windows 10
29th of July is the most expected date for all admirers of Windows OS. It is the release date of Windows 10, a new and enhanced multi-user operational system.
Windows for a reason is considered the most popular OS in the world and is used by people of all ages. Since kids also use this OS, Windows have begun to implement parental control features in all versions of its operational system starting with Vista. All that efforts resulted in the Family Safety option, a built-in parental control sub-module of the User Accounts section.
Family Safety is a user-friendly and comprehensive parental control tool that allows parents to monitor, manage, and control children’s activities. With its help, it is possible to:
- set time limits on using PC;
- block applications children aren’t allowed to use;
- control the use of the Internet and block certain websites.
It is really easy to set up parental controls with the help of the Family Safety features:
Step 1: Find Control Panel and click User Accounts. There you will find the Family Safety option on the bottom left corner.
Step 2: Look through the list of active accounts (take into consideration that Family Safety can be applied to a non-administrator only). Find your kid’s account or create a new one for him or her.
Step 3: You will get a list of options for adjustment of settings, where you can turn Family Safety on entirely. Web filtering will give you a possibility of creating a white list of accessible websites or prohibit file downloads. App restrictions control all games and applications children are allowed to play.
With Family Safety, your PC run by Windows 10 will be safe and secured. But how about tablets and smartphones, where child activities should be controlled as well? Pumpic, an enhanced parental control app, will come in handy here. It has all features proposed by Family Safety sub-module and even more, so your children will be protected for all times and occasions.
