Configure Norton Family house rules for video supervision

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

Lists the videos your children watch online on their device, even letting you view a snippet of each video, so you know when you need to talk.

Norton Family monitors and records the video activities of your child on the following video-hosting websites when watched only on browsers and not in apps:

  • YouTube

  • Hulu (only on Windows computer)

When your kids watch YouTube playlist in Chrome on Android phone or tablet, the address bar gets automatically hidden. In this case, Norton Family cannot monitor and report such individual playlist videos as separate activities. So, to get the best from Norton Family, ask your children to use Norton Family browser for the browsing activities on their mobile devices.

For video supervision to work properly, ensure that Norton Family extension is enabled on the browsers that your child uses to connect to the Internet.

You can use Norton website or Norton Family app for parents to view or update the house rules.
