McAfee® Safe Family

Make the digital world a safer place for your kids.

Keeping kids safe online


Children are exposed to a lot on the internet: between browsing at home, in school and on the go, there’s a lot they can encounter. That’s why it’s so important to use a parental control software that helps keep them safe, even when you can’t be there. McAfee Safe Family covers the basics and beyond by blocking certain websites and apps, managing screen time and even keeping track of your kids’ location.
