Monitor your child's Internet search terms

Search supervision is supported on Windows computer, Android phone and tablet, iPhone, and iPad.

Search supervision shows you the words, terms, and phrases your children search for on their device, giving you insights into their interests and helping you keep them safe from inappropriate content. On Android, searches made using Google app are not monitored. So, to get best protection from Norton Family, ask your children to use Norton Family browser for the browsing activities on their mobile devices.

Using Norton Family, you can activate search filters on your child's device. These filters help you to remove explicit or inappropriate content in the search results and provide a secured search experience for your child. When you turn on search filter, Norton Family activates the Safe Search feature on all of the search engines that it supports.

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

  • Ask

  • YouTube

  • Google

  • Bing

  • Yahoo
