    How to Set App and Game Limits for Microsoft Family Child on Windows 10, Xbox One, and Android


    A child's location, limit which websites and games they can access, and require your approval to purchase from the Microsoft Store.

    Once you set up your family group, you can add or remove child and adult members.

    If your child is spending too much time on certain apps, you can set limits on the apps to help them achieve a healthy balance. App limits are available on Windows 10 and Xbox One devices, along with Android devices with Microsoft Launcher installed. Once you set a limit on an app, that limit will work across all of their devices. (For example, if you give them three hours on YouTube, they can spend a total of three hours on Windows 10, Xbox One, and Android.)

  5. Microsoft Family Should have more than child and adult family members...

    Has anyone noticed that when adding someone to the Microsoft family there is only adult and child as a selection... Wouldnt it make sense for there to also be a teenage selection for those parents who want their teens to have
    control of their own settings but still be able to monitor their activity (without the teens needing the parents account info)...

    I would make sense and could even be set to switch over from child to teen when the child hits a certain age...the parent could even pick the age...

    Why not add it...it would be useful to quite a few people and it just makes sense to have a teen family member option

    Ideas and things to take into consideration for a teenager family member option:

    • Giving the teen a sense of responsibility by:
      • Allowing control over some settings
      • Option to give a money spending limit or making them able to save the money given to them over certain periods of time in order to buy something
      • ect.
    • Addition of a rating limit and automatically asking the parents for permission to buy or watch something that is over the rating limit.
    • ect.

    This is just an idea I thought of...

    If you have any support or aditional idea's for a teen family member option comment them below cause i wanna see if anyone else has ideas that would work with this...

  6. Windows 10 can't connect to Microsoft family

    A Microsoft account is required to use the Microsoft family features. With this, you can add members to your Microsoft family and set the right limits for your child. A parent can manage settings for a child if both of their Microsoft accounts
    are in the same family. To learn more, we suggest that you check the following links:
