  2. How to delete an adult account in the Family Settings.

    Hi,

    To resolve your issue, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • As an adult in the family account, sign in with your Microsoft account.
    • Under Your family, click
      Remove
      .
    • Click the child account you want to remove, and click Remove.
    • You will get an email confirmation once the child has been removed from the family.
    Note: If you removed a Child account, it will be tagged as an "Orphaned account" and you will need to attach another "Parent account".

    Regards.

  3. Microsoft Family will not block Facebook

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    The current design of Family Safety web filtering is to block the exact name of the website that you added to your blocked list and it doesn't matter if they use http or https when accessing the website as long as the name of the
    website is listed it will still be blocked by Family Safety.

    Please provide additional information to help you better.

    1) Have you tried accessing the blocked website using either of these parameters http:// or https:// and see some difference?

    2) Are you managing the Family safety settings through the Family safety website or through the control panel?

    3) If you are using the website, what level of web filtering restrictions did you apply?

    If the web filtering restriction level is set to ‘Warn on adult’, it will allow all websites but only shows a warning when an adult website is visited. I would suggest you to set the web filtering level to either ‘Online communication’
    or ‘General interest’ or ‘Designed for Children’ filters which will block all adult website. Refer to these steps:

    a) Log into the Family safety website (https://familysafety.microsoft.com/
    ).

    b) Click on the child account and click on ‘Web filtering’ in the left pane.

    c) Click on “restriction level’ and choose the appropriate filter.

    If you are managing Family safety through control panel, then follow these steps:

    a) Press Windows key + F, set the search filter to settings.

    b) Type ‘Family safety’ and click on the Family safety tile.

    c) Click on the child account and then click on the ‘Set web filtering’.

    d) Choose the appropriate filter.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

  4. browser blocked by family settings as an adult

    In Windows 10 does Microsoft Family block adult content in Chrome?

    Hi

    Even when using microsoft edge on windows 10 mobile, adult sites are not blocked.

    • if bing is used as the search engine, then 'bing' will block the adult sites.
    • if you use edge then go to google and search, the sites aren't blocked even though i'm still using edge. When you go into MS family settings, it claims to have blocked them.
    I upgraded the mobile to windows 10 mobile because the same problem exitsts in windows 8.

    Regards
