Online Family Safety is not tracking web activity

Norton online family stopped tracking web activity. I tried installing and reinstalling and it still does not work. I looked through the forums and tried couple of things suggested by other people with no success. Please help.

Hi kathai,

 

I was just wondering besides web logs, do you see other functions work in the program, like if you visit a blocked website as your monitored child, do you get blocked?

 

 

Thanks,

Katie

Re: Online Family Safety is not tracking web activity

Hi,

I am having a similar/same issue.  Have installed Norton Family on 2 x Mac Airbooks.  Each has an admin account used by me and a dedicated user accoun for my kids on their respective Airbook.   Worked well (mostly) for 1st day on both machines - activity blocked as approriate (web and time limts) and activity visible by me logging on to Norton Family account but after 1st day one machine /account activity stopped showing up online.  By logging on to daughters account and delberately trying to access blocked website the website was blocked and Norton "dog" appeared, however this activity is not appearing on the Activity page, nor am I receiving any email alerts (and has definitely been set-up).  I have installed the Safari extension, uninstalled it, reinstalled it. Reinstalled Norton Family and all has made no diference for this particlar Airbook and my daughters account.  The other Airbook and son's account is generally still working as expected, except that I do not receive alert emails.

Have previously used Norton family with an older Windows laptop with a kids account and everything has worked as expected: activity visble on Norton web site, emails about time limits, blocked web sites etc.

Any tips gratefully received.

 

Thanks.

Can you please send your Norton Family account email address to me by private message in the forum, then the team can check it further?

None of the function works.  Web logs, website blocking and everything else also not working.

Hi kathai,

 

If none of the fuction works, please check out the Get Started file below and  setup your Norton Family account correctly.

Re: Online Family Safety is not tracking web activity

I have gone through the setup process in the past and have not changed the settings in a while.  This issue started happening few months ago and still going on. 

 

Strangely, last night Norton Family showed a time limit exceeded message.  I have never setup time limits.  Only Web filtering and tracking web usage.  May be some of the functions are working.  I just checeked,  Still the web usage tracking is not working.
