  1. Family Safety Monitor Running for no Reason?


    After installing Windows 10 build 18343, I found an unidentified icon in the task tray which I figured to be the Family Safety Monitor through Task Manager. I have not set up a family, been apart of one or touched it at all. In my 'Devices' on the Microsoft website, it also displays all my devices with my profile picture at the bottom and the same icon side by side. I can end it in Task Manager but it launches every time I log in. Is there a way to stop it from launching on startup or disabling it altogether?


    Any help would be appreciated

    :)

    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.

    Adding phone to Family Safety

    If you haven't used Family Safety before, you can skip this step. If you already use Family Safety, you'll see a screen where you need to match each Windows account to a name on the Family Safety members list.
    If a Windows account doesn't have a matching Family Safety name, click the option to add it.

    You'll recognize the people listed on the Family Safety members list as the people in your family who already use Family Safety. When you match them to their Windows accounts, you're verifying for Family Safety that each person is matched to their own correct
    settings. For example, if your child's name is Ben, he might have a Windows account named Ben but be listed in the Family Safety members list as Ben Miller. By matching the accounts, you tell Family Safety that this is the same person.

    If there's a Windows account on the computer for someone who hasn't used Family Safety before, you'll see them at the bottom of the list. When you click Add (person's name), Family Safety creates a new Family Safety
    membership for them with their Windows account name.

    You can match your existing Family Safety settings to your Windows accounts...

    Add passwords...

    It's important that all of your Windows accounts have passwords. If you have an account without a password, your kids could log on to that account and bypass their Family Safety settings.

    If the Windows accounts you're setting up to monitor don't have passwords, click Add passwords.

    If you have guest accounts on your computer, you should turn them off because kids can also use them to bypass safety settings.

    Verify your setup...

    Click Next and you'll see the Windows accounts that Family Safety is now monitoring on the computer.
