Help & Advice

You can use Family Safety to help manage how your children use the computer, for example setting time limits on the hours they can use the computer, the types of games they can play and what programs they are allowed to use

 

Each person that you wish to enable family safety settings for has to have their own user account on the computer, and this can be configured at the same time as enabling the parental controls if you don't already have separate user accounts for each user of the computer

 

Family Safety can be accessed from the Control Panel under the User Accounts and Family Safety section

 

Choose the user you wish to enable controls for, or click create a new user account to configure a new user
