You can set up a much safer computing environment for your children, and in this guide, we'll show you how on Windows 10.
On Windows 10, you can add multiple accounts to share a device with other family members. If you have children in the family, they can also have a personal space, but in a more controlled environment to make sure they have the safest experience possible while using apps, playing games — on Windows 10 or Xbox One — and browsing the internet.
It's all possible using a child account, which once created, you can manage in a number of ways through the Family dashboard in your Microsoft account. Using these tools, you can review reports of your children's online activities. Limit the time they can spend in front of Windows 10 devices, or the time they spend playing Xbox One games. You can restrict apps and games, and you have the ability to make sure they don't end up visiting websites that aren't suitable for them.
