What is Windows Live Family Safety? With Windows Live Family Safety, you can help protect your children by limiting the websites they can view and the people they can contact using Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Hotmail, and Windows Live Spaces. You can also restrict the time they can spend on the computer, the games they can play, and the programs they can use. You’ll have more control over what your children are doing online, without having to peer over their shoulders. Family Safety has two parts that work together to help you create, manage, and enforce online safety rules for your family: The Family Safety Filter is a free, downloadable program you install on the computers your kids use. It tracks and blocks website access and certain other online activities. The Family Safety website is where you go to customize settings for each family member, view activity reports, and respond to requests.
- SafeSearch is locked on for Bing, Google, Yahoo! and other popular search engines. You can add kids right on the Family Safety website. For parents who are ready to give older kids a bit more responsibility, we’ve added a new setting that allows all websites but lets you know if kids go to potentially inappropriate ones. The Family Safety website gives parents control over when kids use the computer, what games they can play, and what programs they can run.
Works great with Windows
- Family Safety enhances the standard Parental Controls in Windows, adding remote management that you can use to change your child’s permissions online. Get session and website visit reports right from the Family Safety website—you don’t have to log on to your child’s PC. When installed on multiple PCs in the household, Family Safety enforces the same settings and combines reports from all PCs into one.
Monitor activities easily
Use activity reports to easily review your kids’ online activities so you can teach them to use the Internet responsibly. Parents who want more control can use Family Safety to block inappropriate content or even limit kids to age-appropriate sites. You can also limit your kids’ email and instant messaging access to approved contacts on Windows Live Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger, so that you’ll always know where your kids are hanging out online and who they might be talking to.
Request to transfer funds
This involves the fraudster calling you posing as your bank or another organization. The number they are calling from may be spoofed to look like the genuine organization. They tell you that you are at risk of fraudulent activities and must transfer your money into their safe account. This is normally their own account and your money is sent directly to the fraudster.
Request to withdraw cash
Some fraudsters pose as police officers and persuade you to withdraw cash from your bank. They will tell you you’re helping with a police investigation. Once the money is withdrawn the fraudster will arrange collection from a courier or the fraudster themselves.
This is currently the most common scam going, A fraudster will contact you saying they are a telecommunication company or Microsoft. They will inform you there is a problem with your computer and that they will fix this for you. They will request you to download some software which gives them access. From there they can get your bank details and or lock you out of your computer and hold your data at ransom. Never allow anyone access to your computer.
Other scams to be aware of
These scams are where you find an item online at a very reasonable price, but after talking to or emailing the seller, you’re told that the item cannot be seen in person. These sellers will often use very convincing looking websites, however they are usually faked versions. They will attempt to press you and persuade you to transfer the money regardless, to secure the item. Once the money has been transferred, they would delete their listing and vanish, leaving you without the money or the item you were meant to purchase.
Be careful when you’re selling something. A buyer could be a potential fraudster. They may offer you a cheque of greater value than the item you may be selling. They may then ask the difference to be transferred back to them, or a third party (such as a shipping agent). Once you have transferred the difference to them, you will find that their cheque has bounced back, and you’ve not received any money.
A fraudster may send you a text message pretending to be a bank or such, claiming that they need to urgently update your details. They make ask you to go to a website, or call a phone number, and ask you for your security details. Having these details may allow them to access your bank account, so never provide any such details.
