Make your PC child-proof

“Con­trol what your kids can and can’t see and do in Win­dows 10 with child ac­counts”

Windows 7 Help & Advice - - WINDOWS HELP & ADVICE - Your guide Tim Hard­wick says…

The in­ter­net is an amaz­ing in­for­ma­tion re­source that brings con­ve­nience to our ev­ery­day lives. But with such free­dom come draw­backs, par­tic­u­larly when it comes to child safety. Few would deny their chil­dren ac­cess to the web, but how do you en­sure they are pro­tected from un­suit­able con­tent? Hap­pily, Win­dows 10 of­fers a so­lu­tion in the form of child user ac­counts.

If you’re shar­ing your PC with your kids, giv­ing them their own ac­count al­lows them to go on­line safely by let­ting you set up age re­stric­tions. That way, you can en­sure they aren’t vis­it­ing web­sites that aren’t right for them, and pre­vent them from down­load­ing and/or launch­ing apps or games they aren’t old enough to be us­ing. These steps also ex­plain how to set time lim­its on us­age, so you can be sure your kids won’t be surf­ing all night.

Tim’s best tip! Web­sites can only be blocked in Edge. Block other browsers in the ‘Apps & games’ screen on your child’s ac­count page.
