Microsoft's Edge Chromium (or Edge, as many people call it) is a powerful web browser. I've covered many of its features before, such as its Tracking Prevention and Profiles. The capabilities of the new Edge browser are pretty impressive.
Another feature that Edge provides is helpful for individuals who have any young children using their computers, and it is "Kids Mode." Kids Mode is like having another profile, similar to what is referenced in the Profiles article mentioned above. Kids Mode allows for some protection that can come in handy. Let's see some of the features of Kids mode:
These features are great, but they only work if the child can't change the profile or turn off the Kids Mode entirely. Fortunately, children cannot turn Kids Mode off without parental authentication first. Starting to use Kids Mode is very easy; launch Edge and then follow these steps:
That is how to get started using Kids Mode within the Edge browser. In another article, we will discuss how to add approved sites or specify whether Edge asks for an age range each time you enable Kids Mode. Kids Mode allows you some comfort in knowing that little ones will be less likely to stumble across something they don't need to see. Keep in mind that while Kids Mode will try to prevent inappropriate things from being shown, it is not a guarantee, and parental supervision is still recommended.
