Digital safety for kids is as important for kids as their physical safety; therefore, as parents, you need to have access and control over what your child can watch and how much time they should spend on it. 

You are providing a solution to Microsoft’s launching the Family Safety app, both on the Android and iOS platforms. It provides many different features through which you can control the time and content that your child watches or experiences on the smartphone.

As a parent, you can use this app to limit screen time for playing games and provide more screen time for the apps you think are educative and help your kids learn something. The best part about using this app is that you can block any adult content to never appear while your kid is using the smartphone. The feature also works with Microsoft Edge on Smartphones.
