Microsoft has further revealed a new parental control feature that will be included in the upcoming build. Dubbed as “Family Safety,” the feature is a way to keep track of what your kids are doing online. Once set, you will then receive weekly reports via email, which include information about how much time your child spend online each day, recent web searches and a lot more. Other advanced tools include web filtering and restrictions for applications and games based on their age ratings.
