    Remove Family Safety Please!!

    As YouTuber and potential Twitch streamer, family safety is getting in my way every time, when I record, a notification pops up and says "You have 15 minutes left of Google Chrome" and it messes up my whole video. I also don't have any time to edit my vids. I feel like Family Safety is not to keep Children Accounts safe, but to limit their course of happiness on their own devices. Many teens like me would also agree with me. If only Microsoft would actuallylisten to their customers. And as a middle schooler that uses online school, I have to use different sites to complete my homework, and it's really annoying.


  2. Remove myself from the Family safety

    Hello Billy,

    I understand that you are trying to remove yourself from the Family safety settings in Windows. We will help you.

    Note: You cannot remove yourself from a family if you are the only adult and there are still child accounts still in the family.
    If you want to remove yourself, you'll need to add another adult first, or remove all the child accounts first.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps you regarding the
    family safety settings.

    Turn off family settings in Windows.

    • To turn off family settings for a child in your family, sign in at Then choose one of these
      • Remove them from family settings by choosing Remove, then selecting their account, then selecting
        Remove again. They’ll still be able to sign in to their PCs, but this will remove any family limits that you set.
      • Or select them from the main family page, which will bring you to their Recent activity. If
        Activity reporting is turned On, turn it
        Then repeat for the other settings pages (Web browsing, Apps, games & media, Screen time, Purchase & spending), making sure that those switches are turned

    Keep us posted if the issue is resolved. We are glad to help you further.

  3. Family Safety Not Changing


    We regret for the inconvenience. Let me assist you.

    From the description provided, I understand that the screen time usage is inaccurate for the child account/s you are referring to.

    Please follow the below suggested methods and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Method 1

    Now, as an initial recommendation, I suggest you to view and check the family settings for the child by signing in to the Microsoft account using a web browser.

    Account security and Online safety.

    You may change the More security settings under account security and
    family safety settings/Manage permissions for children under Online safety in the above link.

    Method 2

    If it still does not help, I suggest you to remove the child account from your Microsoft Family Safety settings and check if it is the Family Safety feature which is preventing the child account to access Office products.

    Follow the below steps.

    • From a web browser, go to
      and sign in with the Microsoft account of an adult in the family.

    • To remove a child, choose Remove at the top of the section labeled
      Select a child to view or edit their settings.
    • Select the person you want to remove from the family
    • Select the Remove button that appears when you've chosen the person to remove.
    Ref: How do I turn off family features?

    Method 3

    • Open the File Explorer, navigate to the location:

      C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Parental Controls
    • Inside the Parental Controls folder, delete all contents including any files and folders.
    • Sign out and then sign in again to re-build the setting data.

    Additionally, I also suggest you to visit to the below link on Family Safety

    Refer to the section Set limits for your child.

    Also refer to the section 'How can I tell if the Family Safety service is connected to my PC and set up correctly?' in the article provided.
