Windows 8's new Family Safety feature monitors the online behaviours of your children, so you can ensure they remain safe online. Reports are uploaded to a Windows Live service, where you can see just what they've been doing with a PC — both online and with local apps.
It's easy to set up Windows 8's Family Safety features — and you can do it as part of creating a new user account. You can set appropriate restrictions, including limiting the time a child can use a PC, and the apps they can download.
