Norton Family provides tools that teach safe, smart, and healthy online habits. It also provides insights that help you foster a healthy online/offline balance for your children and their devices.

At home, attending school, or on the go, Norton Family helps keep children focused on what’s most important.

Norton Family empowers parents to keep track of their child’s online behavior.

• Monitor the sites and content your child views
Make the Web safer for your kids to explore — by keeping you informed of which sites your kids are visiting, and letting you block potentially harmful and inappropriate sites.‡

Norton Family also provides insights into the search terms and videos (3) that interest your kids and flags unsafe behavior so you can discuss online safety, as a family.‡

• Set limits on your child’s internet access
Help your kids balance time spent online by scheduling screen time limits for their device usage.‡ This can helps you focus your child on schoolwork and avoid online distractions while remote learning or at bedtime.‡

Location services disables automatically

I appreciate this app for the ability to set and change house rules, block certain websites, and know where my child's is. I am frustrated by the fact that location services keep turning off somehow on both devices. This never happened before with a different monitoring app. And it happens when no one is using the phone or tablet. A smaller issue is that there is no way to lock devices separately. The only option is to lock all of one child's devices. Now I'm in a situation where the morning of a day my child's phone was stolen, the location services were disabled, so I can't locate the phone. And I can't lock it without also locking my child's tablet which she can also use to communicate.

Great app for enforcing rules for the computer with the kids.

This app is awesome! Especially for the price! Most parental control apps this advanced are $30 or more a month. This is around the same, but you also get Norton 365 and Norton lifelock. Protect your kids, your identity, and your technology all for a cheaper price than one of these types of programs would cost! On this Parental Control App you can have multiple kids and customize each one. You can monitor everything they do on their phone or computer and see their location. You can set bed times, and school times. During those times you can set emergency contacts and websites that can be accessed, like making canvas or an mouse accessible during school hours. You can set how many hours they are allowed total in a day and in a week. So say your kid is allowed 35 hours a week, up to 5 hours a day, but they choose to use there 35 hours in the first 5 days, they won’t be able to go on it the last 2 days without asking your permission. They can send a request through the app and you can approve or deny it. You can pick categories that are allowed or not allowed, and/or allow certain websites but place a warning on them letting your kids know that it well let you know and show them what they were doing. The customization is incredible once you get the hang of it. It does take some practice to get used to, but once you do, the possibilities are endless!

Nama’s Peace of mind!

Norton products have been keeping us safe online for many, many years now and even as our internet time has lessened as we get older I now continue to thank Norton once again for keeping my grandchildren safe while visiting and allowing them and us to enjoy what the internet has to offer safely and securely. Norton 360 Deluxe has been a godsend in allowing myself to monitoring my grandchildren across all of our devices (5) and making sure they are safe and that gives me great peace of mind. Norton 360 Deluxe is not free like some apps but what you get is way worth it. So, my advice is if you’re wondering about using Norton... do it! You won’t regret it and by the way any questions or issues you may have their agents via live chat are awesome.
