Microsoft Family Safety app Android

Microsoft is now accepting applications from its users after launching the new Family Safety app (in preview) on Android and iOS.

This was promised earlier this year during the Microsoft’s 365 Digital Event in March 2020 where Microsoft announced the new Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscriptions.

These subscriptions offer powerful set of free applications and services that help you create, share, connect, and collaborate with your friends and family across the web and on Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android devices.

The app is now available on Android and iOS in a limited preview and you can head to this page to sign up.

Microsoft Family Safety helps you to facilitate a dialogue with your kids about the time they are spending on their devices and type of content they are viewing. The app provides transparency on where everyone is spending time online and allows you to create flexible schedules to carve out more time for things like online learning.
