After scrutinizing the way Windows 10 handles child safety as opposed to Windows 8.1, I've concluded that Child Safety in Windows 10 is seriously inferior to Windows 8.1. The level of granular controls available in Win8.1 trumps Windows10 by a large margin. In Windows10, Microsoft is encouraging me to create a Microsoft account to manage as part of my account. So Ive gotta create an email for my 7yr old? I don't think so Microsoft. They do allow you to create a local account for the child, however, you cannot make it a child account, as you previously can in Win8.1. You can only set up a local account as a Standard account or Administrator. That's a step backwards. I don't like that I'm being encouraged to create a email account for my 7yr old in order to monitor and control what my son can do on his tablet. Win8.1 allowed me to control exactly what my kid can do on the tablet on a micro level. All the way down to the ratings on games from windows store, what he can access, when he can access, what applications he can launch (even modern apps), filter internet usage, PC time use, log on times etc to name a few. In Windows 10 all that functionality is relegated in the cloud.
So now im looking for a separate application that can offer me this level of control. If I cant find a suitable one, then im reverting these tablets back to Win8.1.
