Configure Norton Family house rules for app supervision

App supervision is supported on Android phones, tablets, and Windows devices.

App supervision feature is only available on Windows 8 or later versions. This feature is not supported on UWP or Microsoft Store based apps and the apps that run as a service.

App supervision shows you the apps that your children have downloaded on their Android phones, tablet, and Windows devices. It lets you restrict your children from using certain apps, including YouTube, Settings, and Facebook. You can also see the amount of time your children spend on each of their apps. However, app usage time can be retrieved only from devices that run on Android 8 or later.

You cannot update this house rule if your child's device does not support the app supervision feature.
