What you need to know
- Microsoft Edge Canary now has a family safety section within settings.
- The section links you to your family dashboard.
- You can use family safety settings to restrict certain content, monitor family spending, and limit screen time.
Microsoft Edge Canary just gained a family safety section within its settings. The section links you to your Microsoft family dashboard. You can use Microsoft's family safety settings to restrict certain types of content, limit screen time for family members, and keep track and limit family spending. Richard Hay pointed out the new section on Twitter.
The family safety section within Edge Canary doesn't actually have any settings in it. Instead, it has a link to your family dashboard and some helpful reminders. It points out that to make sure the family safety settings work, your kids need to sign in to Microsoft Edge and all of their devices with a Microsoft account. It also reminds you that if your child uses a browser other than Edge that family safety settings won't work correctly.
Microsoft has some handy features for family safety if you use a Microsoft account across supported devices. For example, its screen time limit settings work across devices, so a child can't just jump from device to device to get around limits. Family safety settings work across Windows 10 devices, Xbox One consoles, and Android devices using Microsoft Launcher.
