My grand kids come from time to time and use my WIN PC. Their parents use Microsoft family safety and the kids ID were blocked from using Chrome browser. I do not want to share PC with them anymore and decided to buy a cheap PC for them. Without thinking about Microsoft family safety, I jumped on to a good Chromebook deal. Now I have a Chromebook and start to wonder if Chromebook will work with Microsoft family safety. The Chromebook can run Android apps. Can I just install Edge on Android and it will cooperate with Microsoft family safety ? If anyone has similar situation, can you share your experience. ?

what programs specifically do they need to run? office is available free online through a browser with a MS account. many other things are also available through a browser.

chromebooks are designed to keep you on all things goggle, using google cloud and so on. there are also android versions of many MS programs as well.

i am not familiar with what family safety is so can't directly speak as to what it does or how to work with it.
