Parental Controls and Windows User Accounts


How to find this tool:

Main Console > Family > Parental Controls

Not all versions of Trend Micro security software include this feature.

You can use Parental Controls to create customized rules for everyone who uses the computer. For example, you can enforce strict filtering when young children use the computer, but still allow more permissive settings for older children.

Customized rules for Parental Controls rely on Windows User Accounts. Microsoft Windows allows you to create unique accounts (with a user name and password) for each person using the computer. You can link these accounts to the Parental Controls, and then set up different filtering and access schedules for each one.

The Parental Controls only recognize Windows User Accounts created on the computer, and do not work with Windows Domain accounts.
