    Microsoft Family shared content restriction


    I've tried to search for this subject, but was unable to find any meaningful information.


    I have four children setup and for the web browsing content restriction, we have it setup that they are only allowed access to websites listed in the "Only Allowed" list (whitelist). What I would like to do is manage one list for all my children. Is there a way to share the "Only Allowed" list among other children in the family?

    :)

  2. Content restrictions on Microsoft Family

    I have a family account set up for my 8yr old child. I have his content restrictions set at 8yrs old. I would like to grant him access to Netflix without me having to give permission because apparently netflix is rated above my childs content restriction....

    Within the account there is the ability to control what websites to enter, but I can't seem to find a field to allow my son's access to Netlifx without raising his 'age' content restrictions. I note that netflix itself has content restrictions already in
    place so I am not concerned about my son having access.

    Anyone who can help?

    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.
