About defining search rules for your child

Norton Family lets you monitor all of the searches that are performed by your child on the Internet. You can view the search term, the time at which the search was performed, and the search engine that was used.

Using Norton Family, you can activate Safe Search on your child's device. Safe Search helps you to remove explicit sexual content in the search results and provides a secured search experience for your child. When you turn on Safe Search, Norton Family activates the Safe Search feature on all of the search engines that it supports.

You can customize and control the Internet searches of your child in the following ways:

  • Turning on and turning off Search supervision.

  • Turning on or turning off Safe Search on your child's device.

If your child typed any special characters such as @, &, !, #, or $ along with the search terms, the craigslist.org search engine often skips these characters before providing search results. Norton Family reports only the actual search terms craigslist.org used for searching.

Norton Family monitors and records the search activities of your children on the following search engines:
