The setup process is streamlined and straightforward, and the product works well with any OS, including Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8/8.1, 10, and 10), Android (4 and later), and iOS (9 or later). The features of Norton Family features are all controlled from an intuitive dashboard.
The Time Supervision feature allows you to keep track of how much time your kids spend on their PCs and devices. Help them foster healthy habits by limiting the number of hours a day they can spend on each device. With Instant Lock, you can help them take breaks. Just enter the PIN to unlock the devices. However, even during lock mode, children and parents can still contact each other.
Literally everything your kids do online can be supervised with Norton Family Parental Control: texting, social media posting, web surfing, and more. Since you likely won’t have time to look over everything, you can still get a general idea of what types of content your children are consuming, as it is all sorted into broad genres like “Shopping”, “Gaming”, “Online Chat”, “News”, “Mature Content”, and so forth. The way it is setup allows you to still have an idea of what they are up to without actually spying on them, which is something some parents would feel uncomfortable doing. It allows kids to maintain some privacy.
Location Supervision keeps you informed about where they are, thanks to tools that help you to map the location of their iOS or Android devices. There is even a 30-day history showing where they have been. The location tracker can be used on both the Android and iOS versions of Norton Family.
Create a profile for each child by entering a name, birth year, gender, and avatar or profile photo. Norton simplifies things by setting up an initial configuration based on the information you specify, and you can always modify the settings.
This is just a general overview of Norton Family Parental Control. There are a lot of other great features as well, including Mobile App Supervision, Video Supervision, and Social Network Supervision.
