Norton Family helps parents keep an eye on what their children do with their devices on the internet. It makes it easier to set limits and help protect them from visiting unsuitable websites. Norton Family enables you to set online rules for your child, and communicate with them within the app.‡ 

Norton Family provides online safety tools for filtering content and setting healthier limits for children. It helps parents keep children safe from inappropriate content so they can visit websitesφ, watch videos8, and use mobile apps on their devices with healthy boundaries.

Features included with Norton Family are:

App Supervision: View and manage the apps your kids downloaded on their Android or Windows devices

Web Browsing: Set rules that block content you don’t want your child to view onlineφ

Video Supervision: Review the videos your child is watching on YouTube.com8

Web Searching: Learn more about what your child searches for and block unsuitable sitesφ

Location Supervision: View a map of your child’s Android or iOS device location history for a period of 30 days6

Installing Norton Family to your child's Android or Windows device lets parents monitor which apps are downloaded and how often they’re used. If your child downloads apps they're not quite ready for yet, you can put restrictions in place to help enforce healthier boundaries with mobile apps.

Norton Family allows you to see which videos your children have watched on YouTube.com in their browser for Windows, Android, and iOS devices. 

Norton Family gives parents tools to block websites and content topics while allowing children to browse the rest of the web more safely. With Norton Family, you can choose to block sites completely, or give your child a warning when they try to visit certain sites, but still enable them to browse after the warning.

Norton Family lets parents set a regular schedule for their child's devices. They can instantly lock a device if a child needs to take a break, or they can carve out chunks of time a child is allowed to use their devices and go online. 

You'll begin by installing Norton Family on your child's Windows, Android, or iOS devices.

Parents can supervise their children with any device—Windows PC (excluding Windows in S mode), Mac, iOS, and Android—through the Norton Family parental control mobile app, or by signing into their account at my.Norton.com and selecting Parental Control via any browser.
