How do I disable Windows Family Safety?

Hi - 

I have Norton Premium which includes Family.   We want to add it to the new Microsoft Surface Laptop with Windows 10 Pro we just got.  It suggests not enabling Windows Family Safety so how do we disable it.

Hi Jakesjag,

Thank you for reaching out to Norton Family.

Please find the link below to turn off windows family safety on Win 10 machines.

Kindly note that, Norton Family is currently not supported on Win 10 S OS since it requires the apps to be exclusively used from Microsoft Store.

Hi - 

Update:  Now I think I understand the link.   I will try it and see if I can get it worked out.

Thanks for your response.   This link is to remove family members, I am looking to turn off Windows Family Safety which is recommended before adding new device to use Norton.   Are you saying this is the same technique to turn off Family Safety?

I did read that Norton could not be downloaded to Windows 10 S so we upgraded to Windows 10 Pro.  

Thanks again
