Formerly known as Windows Live Family Safety, Family Safety is a parental monitoring and control program that was first released by Microsoft to the public on November 6, 2007. Family Safety is designed to help protect children on the computer by monitoring their usage, setting time limits and restrictions, and filtering the web pages you want them to see. Since its release Microsoft has included Family Safety in the default install of Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows 8 and should resemble the picture shown in the example below.
In Windows 10, Family Safety is changed to Parental Controls and is part of the Windows Defender Security Center.
Within Family Safety or Parental Controls, users can enable, modify or disable various options, like blocking the accessibility of web pages and programs, and setting time limits for computer use.
