Microsoft Family Safety

Microsoft today announced Safer Families programme to educate parents on how to teach their children online safety. As part of this programme, Microsoft will offer free workshops in workplaces across the UK, including Argos to educate parents on how to maintain the safety of their children online. Most of the Microsoft’s products comes with family safety included, but many people are unaware of it. To tackle this problem, Microsoft has created a series of videos explaining how to activate family safety settings across Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows Phone, Windows 7 and 8 operating systems.

Nicola Hodson, general manager of marketing and operations at Microsoft, said parents face a challenge in keeping track of the technology within their home.

“Our advice is to really think hard about letting your children be online unsupervised,” she said. “Make sure you use the tools available to block access to inappropriate websites, films and games – especially with phones and games consoles where you are less likely to be around. Parental controls aren’t the whole answer but they can really help.”
