Windows 8 to come with new parental controls

The upcoming Windows 8 operating system will come with new parental controls, Microsoft has confirmed.

Unlike previous Windows versions Windows 8 will rely on the so-called Family Safety parental controls, which will not just set web filters and restrictions – instead the new instrument will collect information not only about the computer usage by the child but also about his/her Internet usage.

The information collected will then be presented using graphs that will show the most visited web sites, for example, or the duration of computer usage in different weekdays. All Windows 8 users need to do in order to monitor their child is to set a user account with all reports being sent to a specified e-mail account.

At the same time Windows 8 will keep the direct tools for imposing various restrictions. For example the new OS will offer five levels of Internet control and will make it possible to set maximum permitted usage length per day and of course block certain web sites, programs and games.

Windows 8 is expected to debut this fall.
