Microsoft Software Aims At 'Safe' Family Web Browsing

OneCare Family Safety provides Web filtering and activity reports. The service, now in beta, requires a software download.

Microsoft on Wednesday released in beta a Windows Live service meant to give parents control over their children's Web surfing.

OneCare Family Safety, available in the United States and formerly known as Family Safety Settings, provides Web filtering and activity reports. The service requires a software download.

The filtering feature lets parents chose "allow, block or warn" settings for a range of content categories. Unique settings can be applied to each member of the household. Parents can adjust settings anytime from any Internet-connected PC.

Parents can also access activity reports for each family member, to stay on top of their children's Web browsing. Microsoft has also made available through the service the American Academy of Pediatrics's recommendations for age-appropriate settings and online activities.
