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 the Norton Family website. You can access the Norton Family website from any device. 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 device
    Norton Family identifies the person using the device 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 or app on every device that your child uses
    Log on to Norton Family website using your username and password, and download Norton Family client. You can install Norton Family client or app on each device that your child uses. Norton Family does not monitor your child activities on 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.
