    I am thinking about getting a surface 2 but the ability for the tablet to either block or preferably report visiting explicit web sites is a must for me. Is there any 3rd party applications or built in software that does this on rt or do I just have to go with full blown windows 8?

    Please see this link. It is possible to set up your child's account on RT.

    Does this report any questionable web visits / searches to the parent account?

    I don't know if it will report only attempted questionable visits or searches. But it will log ALL web sites visited and you can see that report.

    I have been told that the functionality in RT is identical to those features on Win8. So, you could try it on a PC to see if it does exactly what you want.

    Thank yall. Looked a bit further into it by setting up my wife's account as the parent and mine as the child. The family safety gives a report of all websites visited to the parent account via the family safety site and blocks sites based on content (or requested blocking). RT is officially a go for me :)

    Hey just letting you guys know that it is easy, even for a child to reset the rt to factory settings thereby allowing him/her to get on sites that are explicit. So this will not necessarily work for all situations. Keep monitoring your child's activity regardless. On that note I am wondering if anyone knows about third party apps or software available for accountability watch on the rt

    I have several devices in my home and instead of having to find a program that will work on each one, I have been using OpenDNS's Family Shield DNS. It is setup in my router so that it covers my Surface2, desktop, kids iPod, kindles, PS3, etc. I don't get any sort of reporting though.
