    My son only has a Apple Watch with cellular. It would be nice to include location tracking via a cellular watch too.

    The time limits and device and app locks don’t work anymore After updating neither does the scheduling.

    The only purpose to have this app is for “family safety” via screen time. Maybe via bug, or via app updates, the time restrictions are lost. How do i find out? When my kids stay awake all night online. Microsoft can’t do anything right. We don’t want new features or AI blah blah blah. We want the basic feature to work. Every day. After every update.

  • stop making me download a new app every six months

    I guess this replaces the previous Microsoft Family app, which I didn't want either but had to download so I could perform a task I should have been able to do on the existing Xbox app. Somehow this is worse than the previous unwanted app, as it is incredibly pushy about wanting to track my location even after I say no. Stop making me download new crappy apps to replace old crappy apps that shouldn't have been necessary to begin with, Microsoft. Just stop.
  • Has way too many loopholes

    The whole Microsoft family safety system is very poorly crafted and to me it seems like a very poor attempt to keep up with other tech companies that offer parental controls. One of the flaws is that on computer there is an app called the “Xbox Gamebar” which has a function called “widget store” through which browsers can be downloaded and used despite having other browsers set to be blocked. This wouldn’t really be a problem except that the filtering features only work with the Microsoft edge browser, unlike apple screen time which works across all browsers. So this allows my child to look at explicit material with that loophole despite the family “safety” features. And the xbox gamebar app also can’t be blocked or restricted in any way through the features. And for the record I have reached out to Microsoft through numerous avenues as recommended by the agents and this problem has yet to be addressed at all. Another flaw is the response times the system takes when dealing with requests my child sends. I can give him extra time or allow an app but it does not work even after restarting the device a few times. The biggest flaw would have to be their online support system where such issues are supposed to be addressed and taken note of except this is just not the case. The agents simply say to post problem on a forum to “hopefully” bring this problem under attention. This is unlike apple who I have dealt with regarding screen time restrictions. Apple addresses the problem and sends it to an escalation team who have the issue fixed in a few days tops. Microsoft does not do this at all. When I reached out to them to fix the issue with Xbox gamebar, and I even specifically asked them to send this to an escalation team, they maneuvered their way around the request telling me to post it on some forum to hopefully bring attention to the problem. This to me makes it clear that Microsoft doesn’t even give much funding to Microsoft family safety. And all of these flaws should make it absolutely clear that Microsoft is simply trying to keep up with other tech companies like apple that actually do the job right. If you want a device for your child but want to put actual restrictions on it, invest in an apple device not a Microsoft one.

  • Very useful

    I use this to monitor and control the amount of time my child spends on their Xbox. It’s very intuitive with how you can determine both the daily amounts and specific time windows. Very useful.
