The app will help us protect and monitor our loved ones
On Tuesday, Microsoft revealed its brand new Family Safety app designed to facilitate the protection and monitoring of loved ones.
Family Safety will be part of the next Microsoft 365 update (formerly Office 365) and will include features such as location sharing , driver safety tactics , activity reports and more.
According to Microsoft, the brand new Family Safety app for Android and iOS, promises to help us ” protect what matters “.
One of Family Safety’s greatest strengths is helping users ” stay safer in the real world “. It can be used for location sharing, so you always know where your loved ones are and to provide notification alerts when someone leaves or arrives at a specific location. It also has some safety features for the driver.
Family sharing can provide parents with statistics on driving habits , including maximum speed, cases of sudden braking and the use of the phone behind the wheel. It can also create driving reports and keep them saved so they can be reviewed later.
Other Family Safety features include screen time limits , activity reports and content filters , although it’s currently unclear how some of these things will work on iOS, where Apple’s restrictions make it almost impossible for third-party apps offer things like screen time limits.
