Configure Norton Family house rules for location supervision

Location supervision is supported on Android phone and tablet, iPhone, and iPad and is available in these regions.

Location supervision lets you track your child's location and know they are safe when they are carrying their device. It uses global positioning system (GPS), mobile network, and/or the Internet to keep track of your child's current approximate location. You can track your child's location from anywhere as long as the device is with them and location supervision is turned on.

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