The new Windows 10 Creators update launched this month has new and free family-friendly features
November 14 2017: All parents worry about protecting their children from inappropriate content on the Web. Windows has provided parental controls for many years; but the new 'Creators' update to Windows 10, that Microsoft is offering this month to legal users takes this process a step further. There is a special site called Microsoft Family (https://account.microsoft.com/family/) which allows parents to add family members including children and create a separate profile for each of them. When parents add their child to the Microsoft Family and turn on activity reporting, they get weekly activity report emails that show a summary of their activity, including websites visited, games and apps used, terms searched for on search engines like Bing and how much screen time they had, even if they have logged in from a friend’s house or any other screen. You can schedule when your child can have screen time or when they must do their homework. You can set an "Ask parent" control when there is a doubt if a site or game is OK for your child. No one knows what lies out in Cyberia. But parents can at least ensure that their children have a safe surfing experience.
