Make your PC child-proof
“Control what your kids can and can’t see and do in Windows 10 with child accounts”
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.
