  1. How do I turn off microsoft family features?


    Please help, I'm going insane.


    Ever since I added myself to a family group to fix my DOB, (i accidentally set my DOB to 2014) family features blocks my access to Itunes, inprivate browsing on edge and google chrome. And when I removed myself from the group, the problem persisted. This is very frustrating. I cannot resolve this problem myself. I need help. I have plenty of files on my desktop, and documents folder, and everywhere that will get lost if I make a new PC login.

    :)

    How do I turn off microsoft family features?

    Hi,

    Microsoft Family Safety is a free parental monitoring app to help make it easier to keep your kids safe online. With Family Safety, you can give them some independence but still keep tabs on their computer activities. Family Safety allows you to:

    • See which websites your kids have visited, and which apps and games they’ve used
    • Block or allow websites, apps, games, or other content.
    • Limit the amount of time they can spend on the PC

    Since you never set up Microsoft family features on your computer, we suggest that you follow the steps on this

    link
    to turn off the family settings in Windows 10.

    Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.
