How to Manage Activity Reporting Settings for Child in your Microsoft Family

It’s easy to share your Windows 10 PC with family members. Add family members using Add a family member from your PC’s Settings, and they’ll be able to use that PC as well. And you’re always in control. You can allow or block them from using a PC at any time.

Add a child to your family to help them stay safer online. Adults in the family can view reports of kids’ online activity, limit how long and when they use their devices, and help make sure they don’t see inappropriate websites, apps, or games. Manage family settings online at account.microsoft.com/family, and changes will be applied to any Windows 10 device the child signs in to. You can also add adults to your family who will also be able to apply settings to children in the family.

The Recent activity family settings for your child allows you to turn on activity reporting for your child so that you can see what they’ve been searching for online. Once you’ve turned it on, you can see what websites they’ve been visiting, what apps and games they’ve been downloading and playing, and how much time they’ve been spending on their devices right from the Recent activity page. You can also get activity reports emailed to adults in the family weekly.

This tutorial will show you how to manage the Recent activity settings to turn on or off activity reporting for a child in your Microsoft family on Windows devices.
