Windows 10: Microsoft Family Restrictions

  1. Microsoft Family Restrictions


    I have tried blocking the usage or time limits of Avast Secure Browser in my kid's laptop with Microsoft Family settings but he is able to use it unrestricted.

    He is using it as an alternative browser to escape Edge parental controls, and apparently Microsoft Family is unable to apply time limits on it.

    I had this same problem a year ago with ROBLOX, as the time limits were clearly not working, but it was finally solved some months ago.

    Any clue about why these limits are not working with Avast Browser?

    Thanks

    :)

    Microsoft family restrictions

    Hi,

    You actually need your parent to turn off any restrictions on your account. I'm afraid you need to get yourself back to your family temporarily. These are the instructions for an adult account.

    • Go to account.microsoft.com/family and sign in with your Microsoft account.
    • To remove a child, find their name, then select Content restrictions. Turn off any settings you may have enabled. Then go back to your family’s page, find the child’s name again, and select More options > Remove
      from family.
    • If you want to remove a child because they’re now an adult, or if an adult account has been misclassified as a child account, they’ll need to verify
      their account
      .

    I personally think you should be good without doing the third step, but I can't give you a guarantee.

    Hope it does the trick. In case of any issues, I'm happy to help you more when needed. If it worked, please mark the answer as helpful.

    Microsoft Family content restrictions not updating

    Hi,

    I have (as parent) added a few websites to the 'Always blocked' list on the 'content restriction' section of my Microsoft Family account. This only seem to apply to the computer where I edited the online 'content restrictions' list. On other computers,
    where I have accounts for my kids, those pages are still accessible. The computer doesn't seem to be synchronising with the online setting. How do I fix this please?
