Defining the house rules

Norton Family protects your child with predefined house rules based on their age and maturity. You have the freedom to customize these rules for each of your children at any time.

Your child can ask your permission for a specific Internet activity and then you can make the appropriate decision. If you need more information, you should talk to your child and find out why he or she needs to visit a particular site that you feel should be off limits.

If you allow access to a specific website based on your child's request, this change is reflected on your child's device automatically.

Make sure that you install Norton Family on every device that your child uses. By logging into Norton Family account, you can view and monitor the Internet activities of your child from any location, as long as you have an Internet connection.

You can change the house rules for your child from Norton Family website or Norton Family app for Android device. To change the house rules for your child from Norton Family website, go to the House Rules page. To change from your Android device, sign in to Norton Family app in Parent mode, tap the child whom you want to manage, and then tap RULES tab.
