  1. Stop “add new user” as a work-around for the family safety app.


    I have computers for my kids where I have admin rights so I can approve screen time. Since they are admin on their computers is there a way I can stop them from using “add new user” as a work-around for the family safety app. I want them only to log in as themselves so access and apps are limited.

    :)

  3. add a user

    Hi Dennis,

    There are several reasons why you are getting this issue. This could be a corruption of the new user profile. To resolve your concern, we suggest that you remove and re-add the new user profile, and see if it works.

    For more information in Family Safety, check the following links:


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

    Family Safety - add device to child profile

    Since this is the case and you have ensured the settings are correctly setup in family Safety, we suggest that you sign in using your main account and remove you child's account from Family Safety list. (Refer to the image below for reference.)

    After completing the steps, attempt to use the email address of your child to login to the computer and see if the same error message still shows up. If the error no longer shows up, we suggest that you attempt to add the account back then to Family safety.

    Regards.
