How to Create and Set Up Your Microsoft Family Group

A family group helps families stay connected and keeps kids safer on Windows 10, Xbox One devices, and Android devices running Microsoft Launcher. It's free, and it's one of the many benefits of having a Microsoft account. With the settings on, you can get reports on a child's activity, set screen time limits, check on a child's location, limit which websites and games they can access, and require your approval to purchase from the Microsoft Store.

Once you set up your family group, you can add or remove child and adult members.

If all child and adult members leave your family group, the group will no longer exist. You can create a new family group at anytime though.
