the Company has made changes in the settings of family safety.


Microsoft has decided to update the settings on the family safety and block popular browsers on devices running Windows. According to the company, this step is dictated solely by concern for the safety of children.

Now parental control will block third-party browsers which have a function of content filtering is not enabled by default. What the reviewers hit the "blacklist", the company did not specify. "In the most common browsers, there are no filters. To ensure the safety of your children we'll automatically block these browsers on the devices," said Microsoft. Thus will be blocked by most popular browsers, including Chrome and Firefox.

Previously, the company has counseled parents for more child safety lock popular browsers and use Internet Explorer and Edge. It is worth noting that the list to be automatically blocked products is not immutable, and if desired, users can make favorite browser to the "white list".

In the past few months, the Network has published a workaround for settings family safety, but their effectiveness was highly questionable. With the changes in security policy Microsoft finally put an end to attempts to circumvent the filters.
