    Family Safety and seperated parents


    Can someone detail what are the important issues two separated parents might have with using Family Safety to manage their children?


    My son 11, is getting a laptop for high school. He currently has a desktop at my place configured for Family Safety. His account is a child account under a family I setup.

    The laptop is brand new and has not been setup. It will be going back and forth between households and he spends school days at both homes during the week.

    What happens when I add my Ex as a second adult?

    What access does she have to my information?

    Can she remove my account as an adult? I found references to primary parent account, is that still at thing, how do I see that I'm it.

    Can she approve purchases against my credit card?

    Can she track the location of devices when the kids are with me?

    I have to logon and create a profile on the machine using my account. Does she also need her account on it as an administrator? While protected by Windows 10 security is there anyway of not having my account/profile on the machine? Or at least forcing 2 factor auth on each login?

    and so on....


    I've not found an article describing this.

    From

    https://www.verywellfamily.com/children-of-divorce-in-america-statistics-1270390

    "Of all children born to married parents this year, fifty percent will experience the divorce of their parents before they reach their 18th birthday."


    So this is a very common issue, directly relates to Microsoft Family Safety and really needs something in the FAQ about it.

    :)

    Windows 10 Family Safety is blocking my browser!!!

    Can you confirm if you are out of the Family Safety feature on your parent's account on this
    link? If you've confirmed that you're no longer on the list of monitored child accounts, we suggest deleting the Family Safety folder. Here are the steps:

    • Press Windows key + E on your keyboard.
    • On the address bar, type this address C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Parental Controls and press
      Enter.
    • Delete all contents of the Parental Controls folder.
    • Restart and see if the issue is resolved.

    Let us know how it went for you.

  3. Family Safety issues

    Hi,

    Microsoft family features (includes family safety features formerly known as
    Microsoft Family Safety), is a free set of features available on Windows 10 PC and Mobile that is bundled with the Windows 10 operating system.
    Please ensure that the parent email account is set as an administrator on the child's laptop. Once done, you may follow the steps below to properly manage the settings on the Family Safety website:

    • On the Start screen, type Family Safety.
    • Click on Settings.
    • Click the Family Safety icon.
    • On the bottom part of the window, click Manage settings on the Family Safety website. Your default browser will direct you to the Family Safety website.
    • Sign in using the parent account.

    For your reference, you may also check this article regarding Family Safety:

    We would appreciate it if you could get back to us and provide us your feedback.

    Family Safety Issue - No "Parent"

    So,

    I just upgraded to Windows 10. Seemed fine.

    Until restrictions were placed on various applications that prohibited me to use them.

    I checked many websites, many forums, but none of them have the answer; except saying that it has to do with family safety.

    I log in with my Microsoft account, and I click the Family settings.

    (I only have one other user on this computer, and that's my brother.)

    When I see "Who's in your family?" listing, there's only two.

    Me, and my brother.

    Both of us are listed as a "child," and not a parent.

    I want to set it so that my account is a "parent."

    How can you accomplish this, and is this possible with the situation I have?
