How to Monitor Safari Browsing on iOS

Add the Safari extension to your kid's iPhone or iPad

  1. Install bark_kids_app.webp Bark Kids from the ios_app_store.png App Store.
  2. Open ios_settings_app.jpg Settings and tap General.
  3. Tap Software Update. Your kid's iOS device will need to be updated to at least iOS 15+ to use the extension. If it's not, update it now. 
    Have an older device? You won't be able to use the Safari extension, but Bark can still block apps and sites with the Bark Kids app. You'll get alerts for blocked sexual content sites (learn more).

How to make sure your kid can’t uninstall the extension

  2. Turn it on if it’s not already enabled.
  3. Once it's turned on, set a Screen Time passcode that only you know.
  4. Tap Content & Privacy Restrictions.
  5. Tap Content Restrictions.
  6. Tap Limit Adult Websites

💡 Pro Tip: Consider using Apple's App Approval feature to prevent your child from installing other browsers.
