  1. Family Safety - Ask for more time


    Dear reader,


    I was wondering about the following:


    I blocked an app on my daughter's own account. When she wants to use the app she has to ask for permission. On my phone I get a notification from the Family Safety app and an e-mail. Perfect! They both ask me how much time I grant my daughter to use app. Awesome!

    But... when it comes to blocked webpages it doesn't work. I can only give her fully access to the webpage and I have to go on a computer browser because the browser on the phone won't show me the option to add the specific webpage to her blocked list after she is ready. Note: It's also not possible to do this action in the mobile app - it would be a bit easier.

    But, to me, it would be perfect when also this can have a timer option, just like when she's asking for time for apps. I don't have to worry about it, I just grant her the amount that's necessary and after that it blocks automatic again.


    Is this option really missing or is it me that just can't find the option?

    If the option is missing, could you please send this to your development team? Or is something like this already being tested?


    Because of Covid she only has remote classes... this would really help to make it a little bit more easier for her to focus on school.


    Look forward to your reply!


    Kind regards,

    :)

  2. Family Safety Not Changing

    Hello,

    We regret for the inconvenience. Let me assist you.

    From the description provided, I understand that the screen time usage is inaccurate for the child account/s you are referring to.

    Please follow the below suggested methods and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Method 1

    Now, as an initial recommendation, I suggest you to view and check the family settings for the child by signing in to the Microsoft account using a web browser.

    Account security and Online safety.

    https://account.microsoft.com/privacy

    You may change the More security settings under account security and
    family safety settings/Manage permissions for children under Online safety in the above link.

    Method 2

    If it still does not help, I suggest you to remove the child account from your Microsoft Family Safety settings and check if it is the Family Safety feature which is preventing the child account to access Office products.

    Follow the below steps.


    • From a web browser, go to
      http://account.microsoft.com/family
      and sign in with the Microsoft account of an adult in the family.

    • To remove a child, choose Remove at the top of the section labeled
      Select a child to view or edit their settings.
    • Select the person you want to remove from the family
    • Select the Remove button that appears when you've chosen the person to remove.
    Ref: How do I turn off family features?

    Method 3

    • Open the File Explorer, navigate to the location:

      C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Parental Controls
    • Inside the Parental Controls folder, delete all contents including any files and folders.
    • Sign out and then sign in again to re-build the setting data.

    Additionally, I also suggest you to visit to the below link on Family Safety

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/family

    Refer to the section Set limits for your child.

    Also refer to the section 'How can I tell if the Family Safety service is connected to my PC and set up correctly?' in the article provided.

  3. Family Safety screen time stuck on old settings

    • I set up family safety settings under windows 8.
    • Configured screen time options to for only daytime, so as to prevent my son from using the computer too early or too late in the day.
    • I've upgraded the computer to Windows 10 (live update, not a fresh install).
    • Now I want to change the screen time settings for my son. Nothing I have attempted (short of clean install of Windows) has worked.
      • Changing time settings doesn't work
      • Turning off Screen Time doesn't help
      • Removing/Adding his account from family safety doesn't help
      • Removing/Adding the computer from family safety doesn't help
    • I don't see a Windows Family Safety service running on the machine, which is odd.
    • I really don't want to do a fresh Windows install.

    Any suggestions are welcome.

    Family Safety- Inaccurate Screen time extension usage

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community.

    We understand the frustration when things don't go the way they supposed to. Let me assist you to resolve the issue.

    From the description provided, I understand that the screen time usage is inaccurate for the child account/s you are referring to.

    Please follow the below suggested methods and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Method 1

    Now, as an initial recommendation, I suggest you to view and check the family settings for the child by signing in to the Microsoft account using a browser.

    Account security and Online safety.

    https://account.microsoft.com/privacy

    You may change the More security settings under account security and
    family safety settings/Manage permissions for children under Online safety in the above link.

    In another scenario, these three questions might help you to identify on the issue.

    1) How does the child ask for an extension?

    2) How does the parent provide an extension?

    3) What is the number of hours allowed for that given day when you login as a parent associated to the family?

    Method 2

    If it still does not help, I suggest you to remove the child account from your Microsoft Family Safety settings and check if it is the Family Safety feature which is preventing the child account to access Office products.

    Follow the below steps.


    • From a web browser, go to
      http://account.microsoft.com/family
      and sign in with the Microsoft account of an adult in the family.

    • To remove a child, choose Remove at the top of the section labeled
