    Family Safety Web Filtering Not Working at All

    Windows 10 Family Safety web filtering, does it only work with Edge and Explorer?

    Can someone please confirm if the web filtering feature in Windows 10 Family Safety only works with Edge and Internet Explorer or does it work on all browsers?

    I used Family Safety in Windows 8.1, the kids only used FireFox and Family Safety always blocked access to inappropriate websites.

    I read that in Windows 10, the Family Safety web filtering feature might only work with Edge and Explorer. Is this true, or does it still block access to inappropriate websites in other browsers?

    If web filtering in Windows 10 only works with Edge and Explorer, then it's pretty much useless. Does anyone have suggestions on alternative programs that work in Windows 10?

    Thanks.
