    Changing child password for Family Safety


    Hi,

    I have tried EVERYTHING I found on support to change my child's password. I created the account online under my account. I copied the password wrong. This login has never been used, so when I tried the recovery page, I couldn't "provide enough info", because there is no info to provide. I am locked out and I cannot find an option anywhere to change the password. I would be very thankful if you wouldn't run me through all the option in the forums. I tried them all.

    I am logged as admin

    I have Windows 10

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Family safety - child can disable all feature, why?

    Hi,

    There may be a sync issue with the restrictions that has been applied to the child account. To isolate your concern regarding Family Safety, we recommend that you follow these steps:

    • Remove the Child account on the Family Safety website.
    • Change the passwords of your account.
    • Add the Child account again.
    • Add the restrictions to the Child account again.

    Keep us updated with the results if your child will still be able to turn off the Family Safety feature after performing the steps above.

    Hello Earl,



    If you are logged in using an Administrator Account and you have set up the child accounts using the same account, then you should be able to change their passwords.

    • Click on Family Safety and select the child account.
    • On the left navigation pane, select Change Password.
