    Android phone not reporting activity on Family Safety


    Hi there, I have family safety installed on a Samsung Galaxy S10e assigned to a Microsoft account, which is also signed in on a Windows 10 laptop. Both devices are using Edge as their browser. The laptop is reporting the activity fine, but the Galaxy device is not reporting any activity at all. I have confirmed the 'Report activity' button is enabled in the Family Safety app, as well as giving the app the appropriate permissions. I also installed Microsoft Launcher on the device, but am still not seeing a record of activity. What am I missing?

    :)

    Family Safety not reporting Recent Activity

    I followed all suggestions on the link provided by Sangeeta Sarkar. Family Safety STILL does not report recent activity.

    Family safety activity reports are wrong

    I have started to homeschool one of my children, and so I was hoping to use family safety to keep track of his computer activity to make sure he is spending required time doing studying.

    But the activity reports are completely bogus.

    They will show wrong number of hours using the computer, for example, I know he has been working for 5 hours, but activity report shows 1 hr 21 minutes.

    So the times in the activity report are complete useless and unreliable.

    It also doesn't even correctly show the apps being used either, some will be missing altogether, and the ones listed clealry have wrong times.

    Is this even fixable? I know from long and painful experience with all my kids computers that family safety is not reliable and randomly breaks.
