  1. Overriding Family Safety by continuously clicking games icon


    It is possible to override Microsoft Family Safety so that even when their time is up, someone can continuously click on a games icon multiple times and eventually that game will start up. Have tried switching off/on, resetting, removing from family and adding back. Have tried everything - nothing prevents this. Windows 10, Microsoft Edge. Please can you tell me how to stop this from happening, or can you fix this bug please? Thank you.

    :)

  2. Family Safety issues

    Hi,

    Microsoft family features (includes family safety features formerly known as
    Microsoft Family Safety), is a free set of features available on Windows 10 PC and Mobile that is bundled with the Windows 10 operating system.
    Please ensure that the parent email account is set as an administrator on the child's laptop. Once done, you may follow the steps below to properly manage the settings on the Family Safety website:

    • On the Start screen, type Family Safety.
    • Click on Settings.
    • Click the Family Safety icon.
    • On the bottom part of the window, click Manage settings on the Family Safety website. Your default browser will direct you to the Family Safety website.
    • Sign in using the parent account.

    For your reference, you may also check this article regarding Family Safety:

    We would appreciate it if you could get back to us and provide us your feedback.

    Windows 10 Family Safety time limits not working

    I had this exact problem and these are the steps I took to get the issue resolved:

    • Navigate to family safety settings and remove the child from the family having issues.
    • Login to the childs account and launch Settings (windows key + i)
    • Click the Accounts icon and select Sign in with local account instead
    • Follow the steps to change to a local account. When completed, Login back to your account (admin account)
    • Go back to the family safety settings and add your child back to the family group.
    • Access your childs email address to accept the family invitation
    • Verify the child now shows properly in the family settings and that the screen times are still correct.
    • Login to the childs account and launch Settings (windows key + i)
    • Click the Accounts icon and select Sign in with microsoft account instead
    • Your family settings should now take affect.

    I know this is pretty tedious, but like I said, it worked for me. If you are still having trouble, I suggest contacting support and they can help walk you through the steps to get it resolved.

    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.
