Does Xbox have parental controls and online safety settings?

Xbox safety features let you control what kinds of content each of your family members can access on Xbox. During the initial console set-up process, you’ll be prompted to set controls that limit your child’s access to video content, online interactions and purchases. Or, you can set controls through the console in Settings. In Settings, you can decide what can be played and viewed, based on content ratings for games, films and television programmes.
