[QUOTE=dgg;48476817]I feel sorry for every and any kid that gets his private sex life revealed to his or her parents, listed down in a fucking email. I can partly understanding using this kind of feature for a public computer, like one in the living room or whatever to keep track on where the fuck all that goddamn spyware is coming from so they can educate whoever is using the computer on what they're doing wrong that causes the pc to go fucking haywire. As long as they are made aware that the computer is logged it's no big deal. I can also partly understand using this kind of feature on a kids personal computer if the kid is... 8 or younger. Not quite in the holy grail of privacy yet and you can at least partly prevent them from frequently logging in on places they risk being exploited at, using this time as a chance to educate them as well as you can on proper internet safety measures. Anything else though is just disgusting and a complete breach of basic human rights to privacy, any parent using this kind of feature in that case is an invasive assholes that does not respect their childrens right to have their own life and their own interest. The least they should do is to make sure to tell their kid that they are being monitored before they ever use the bloody thing.[/QUOTE] I agree to a point. I do think that sex is something that parents should discuss with their kids throughout puberty. I don't think not saying anything about it is healthy. That's how I was raised, and I didn't end up learning anything about sex until I started watching porn at 18. If you ask me, that's a terrible way to learn about that kind of thing. I can see this being useful for smaller children, but the second I get notifications about porn sites, I'd shut off the monitoring and talk to them about it. Like you said, at that point, it does get invasive. I don't want to know my kids' fetishes, just that they're being safe and responsible.
This is disgusting. When I have kids I wouldn't want to restrict their PC account in any way, much less have this trust-diminishing process in place. My parents letting me fuck around with a computer however I want and for as long as I want allowed me to really explore what's possible and even wound me up having the career I do now in 3D CG. I wouldn't take that possibility from my own kids even if it means them being able to lie to me. But if they're having to lie to me in the first place, I would had've made some mistake to make them feel like they can't come to me.

That's terrifying. You can be damn sure I'm not letting my kid end up here. He will anyway, of course. But it's the premise of the thing that counts.

If you care about privacy, or your OS to not spy on you, you get something like Linux, or Illumos.

That is, if my computer ever actually manages to connect to the service; I've had a "could not connect to Microsoft Family" error since day one
Is it too late to delete my browsing history?
Can't you just get a network filter and disallow outgoing connections to microsoft? I've already got one running for Adobe.

Actually made a child account today (I write guides for Windows). You have to be pretty determined to get this stuff up and running - this includes going into the kids e-mail account and click accept to an e-mail that informs you that other members of your family will be able to "help you stay protected online", after going in to settings and deliberately set up a kid's account instead of a normal one.
Does this work across different devices? Or only on the same desktop family pc with multiple accounts?
[QUOTE=ThePanther;48503555]Does this work across different devices? Or only on the same desktop family pc with multiple accounts?[/QUOTE] Since all the family safety features are now tied to the kid's Microsoft account (and from what I've gathered you can't make a local kid account in Windows 10), and furthermore changed from the web, it should work across any device where the kid's Microsoft account is used to log in.
[QUOTE=No_0ne;48465645]im staying way the fuck away from windows 10[/QUOTE] You joined Facepunch 10 years ago. Are you honestly still young enough to have your parents putting you on a child's account or are you just looking for an excuse to not like a new thing.
