We have already heard lots about Microsoft Windows 8 and everyone must be waiting for its final release. In the meantime, last week Microsoft said that

If there are multiple accounts, then Windows 8 users will get an option for check box that says “Is this a child account? Turn on Family Safety to get reports of their PC use”. And no configuration, no downloads, no installation and neither wizards is required for it.

But Monitoring a Kid’s Web activity may be difficult if there are multiple computer system at your home, or if your kids use their Laptops of tablets.Windows 8 will allow parents to trace their Kid’s activity easily and can receive weekly reports describing their PC use.

In windows 8 the report activity is complex than the traditional Web filtering and is less time-consuming and also software-based restrictions.

It has been reported that the end result was that many parents abandoned family safety products and returned to in-person supervision only. And so Windows 8 will be going with the “monitor first” approach.

With Windows 8, if you think or if you find your children are navigating to the sites which you disapprove or the site you don’t want to let them surf then you can easily block that sites access by just clicking a link which you will receive in your emailed activity report.

Microsoft reported that the Family Safety feature will be enabled only in the upcoming Windows 8 Release Preview, which is expected to be released in early June. And till then you must wait for its feature how it works.
