    Family Saftey with Windows 10 - Adding Second Device to Child


    We have two computers. Both show-up in my Microsoft account. My daughter is already in my Microsoft Family. I can track her activity on only one of the two computers. In my Microsoft account, I noticed that under her account it says:


    Devices connected to this account: 1


    Who can I fix this issue to allow me to track her computer activity on the second computer?


    Thanks!

    :)
