How to Connect an AOL Email Account


Bark is able to monitor emails sent and received (including attachments) on connected email accounts like AOL. We will alert on instances of bullying, sexual content, violence, weapons, and more. We can even alert you to new and risky apps that your child has signed up for with this email.
