How to use parental controls on Windows 10 – TechEngage

In this digital age, data is easily accessible all over the internet, and the problem is the internet does not know whether one is ready to process it or not. Plenty of sites use Recaptcha or Age metric to scrutinize website visitors. However, they don’t verify age with an ID or anything authentic. It’s haunting for many parents who are worried about their child’s activities on the internet.

The Internet can also be a dangerous place as your kids can come in contact with a random stranger who might harm them emotionally or manipulate them in ways no one would want to imagine. Similarly, children don’t know how much time they should spend on their gadgets. Hence it is important to teach them that there’s a world out there other than this digital mess.

Windows 10 lets you manage your children’s activities and allows you to take control of your child’s online environment. It takes a few steps to monitor your child’s online space, and here is a quick guide on how to use Parental Controls on Windows 10.
