How To Set Up Outlook Family
Parental Controls in Outlook
Inside your family account
- Activity: The Activity tab shows you exactly what your child is doing when logged in to their Microsoft account. See what apps and games your child is using, what sites they are visiting, what they’re searching for online, and how much screen time they’re spending.
- Screen Time: The Screen Time tab allows you to set screen time limits for all of your Microsoft devices for each individual child.
- Content Restrictions: The Content Restrictions tab is where you’ll find all the ways to control your child’s activity through their Microsoft account. Toggle on or off your child’s ability to make purchases online, manage what apps/games they are able to interact with, and manage what websites they are and are not able to visit.
- Spending: Microsoft allows users to make purchases through their accounts. Under the Spending tab, users can add money to their account for use online.
- Find Your Child: Using this tab, easily locate your child’s registered Microsoft devices in the event they are lost or stolen.
How to Monitor Content
In addition to setting parental controls on your child's device, the next safety layer parents and caregivers should strongly consider is a monitoring solution to assess the content their kids encounter (and produce) across text messages, social media, and email. Bark can do this for you. In Outlook, Bark monitors the emails your child sends and receives including attachments. If you'd like to see a detailed list of everything Bark can monitor, click here.
