User accounts allow several people to share a single computer. Each family member can log on to Windows using their own user name and password. Each user can then have personalized settings. When your children use separate user accounts, Norton Family can monitor each child individually.

If your computer has a single user account, it is an Administrator account. You should create a standard user account for each child who uses the computer. This assures they won’t run Administrator tasks, like creating new user accounts.
