Getting started
If you’re not sure how to protect your children while they’re online, help is here! We’ll get you up and running in no time, and provide everything you need to protect your family from Internet dangers and inappropriate content. We’ll even help you keep your children from passing along confidential information online.

We’re here to protect your family, so let’s get started.

Here’s what you need to do first:
Register for Norton Family
To do this, you need a Norton account, which will take about two minutes to create. If you’ve ever used any of our Norton products, it’s possible that you already have a Norton account. If you don’t have a Norton account, don’t worry; Norton Family will automatically set one up for you.

Registering for Norton Family
Access Norton Family
You can view and monitor real-time reports on the Internet activities of each of your children by using Norton Family. You can access Norton Family using your computer, Android, iPhone, or iPad. Click the following link for easy instructions.

Accessing Norton Family
Make sure that each child uses a different user account to log on to the computer
Norton Family identifies the person using the computer based on the account that is used to log on. If you have not created a user account for each family member, click the following link for easy instructions.

Creating user accounts
Download and install Norton Family client on every device that your child uses
Log on to Norton Family website using your username and password, and download Norton Family. You must install Norton Family on each device that your child uses. Some features are currently not available for iOS.

Installing Norton Family client or app
Discuss Norton Family with your family
Communication is the key to family safety. Therefore, you can initiate a discussion with your child explaining the importance of responsible use of the Internet.
