Bark Phone Rule Changes Are Taking a Long Time
If you've adjusted a rule and it’s not taking effect on your kid’s device, there are couple of reasons this may be happening:
The Bark Phone has a poor internet connection
If the cellular service or Wi-Fi connection is spotty, it can take longer than normal to receive the app approval request, for example.
Bark permissions were disconnected
If an important setting is disabled, this may affect Bark's ability to apply a new rule to the phone. You can fix this by following this guide.
Your account time zone is incorrect
Double-check you've set your time zone in your account settings.
The Bark Phone time is incorrect
If the phone has the wrong time, it may think it’s in a different time zone. Here’s how to fix it.
- On your child's phone, open Settings > tap General Management > tap Date and Time > enable Set Time Zone based on Location.
