Almost every modern web browser for Windows 10 now allows users to create multiple profiles. If we talk about the new Microsoft Edge, the web browser also allows users to create multiple accounts based on needs. Now it looks like Microsoft Edge is getting a new feature known as ‘Kids Mode.’
According to Microsoft, ‘Kids Mode’ is a new browsing mode that’s designed for kids. So, if Kids use your computer, you should create an account for them. Kids Mode could be a great place for children to browse the web safely.
Compared to Microsft Edge’s regular user accounts, the Kids Mode includes some new features like custom browser themes, kid-friendly content, browsing on allowed websites, and strict Bing SafeSearch. Also, the Kids Mode requires password verification whenever someone tries to exit the account.
This article will share a detailed guide on how to activate and use the new Kids Mode in the Microsoft Edge browser. Let’s check out.
