    How to Turn On or Off Ask a Parent before buying stuff in Microsoft Store for Microsoft Family Child Member


    One of the many benefits of having a Microsoft account is a family group, which gives you access to family features and settings. It's a free service that helps families stay connected and keeps kids safer on Windows 10, Xbox One devices, and Android devices running Microsoft Launcher. Youll find settings like activity reporting, screen time limits, location sharing, and content filters, where you can also track kids spending and add money to their Microsoft accounts.

    A Microsoft family group is separate from other Microsoft apps and programs. You can sign up with your email account. If you already use Skype, youll have a family chat set up and waiting for you once you create your family group. If you dont already have Skype, get more information and sign up to create an account for your family.

    Once you set up your family group, you can add or remove child and adult members.

    The content filters you set determine what your child can get from the websites they visit, which games they can play, or whether they need adult approval to buy from the Microsoft Store. Content filters include three settings: Ask a parent; Apps, games & media; and Web browsing. You set the rules, and you decide when to break them. Like with screen time, your child can send you exception requests for content that you can respond to through email or on account.microsoft.com/family.

    You can require adult approval for the things your child wants to buy in Microsoft Store, except what they get with gift cards or money in their Microsoft account. Even when Ask a parent is turned off, youll still approve content that exceeds the age limit you set in the Apps, games & media section.

  2. Microsoft Family Should have more than child and adult family members...

    Has anyone noticed that when adding someone to the Microsoft family there is only adult and child as a selection... Wouldnt it make sense for there to also be a teenage selection for those parents who want their teens to have
    control of their own settings but still be able to monitor their activity (without the teens needing the parents account info)...

    I would make sense and could even be set to switch over from child to teen when the child hits a certain age...the parent could even pick the age...

    Why not add it...it would be useful to quite a few people and it just makes sense to have a teen family member option

    Ideas and things to take into consideration for a teenager family member option:

    • Giving the teen a sense of responsibility by:
      • Allowing control over some settings
      • Option to give a money spending limit or making them able to save the money given to them over certain periods of time in order to buy something
      • ect.
    • Addition of a rating limit and automatically asking the parents for permission to buy or watch something that is over the rating limit.
    • ect.

    This is just an idea I thought of...

    If you have any support or aditional idea's for a teen family member option comment them below cause i wanna see if anyone else has ideas that would work with this...

    Hi Laurel,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forum.

    This could happen when the child account fails to sync with the server. I suggest you to try the steps listed below and check if it works:

    • Open
      File Explorer
      and navigate to the following location:
    • C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Parental Controls


      Note:
      The above mentioned directory is hidden, copy and paste the same location on the search bar in the File Explorer to access it.
    • Delete the contents in the
      \\settings
      directory of the Parental Controls folder.
    • Reboot the machine to see if the issue persists.

    If the issue persists, you may want to remove the child account from Microsoft family and add it again.

    • To know how to remove an account from Microsoft Family, refer:

      Remove members from your family group
    • To know how to add an account to Microsoft Family, refer:

      Add members to your family group

    Regards,

  6. Windows 10 can't connect to Microsoft family

    A Microsoft account is required to use the Microsoft family features. With this, you can add members to your Microsoft family and set the right limits for your child. A parent can manage settings for a child if both of their Microsoft accounts
    are in the same family. To learn more, we suggest that you check the following links:


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