Check-Ins are a great way of getting your child's location via the Bark for Kids app on Android devices and via the Bark Kids app on iOS devices. 

We use the GPS inside of your child's device along with the help of Google Maps to send you your child's location. We even include directions to your child's location!

 

Troubleshooting Check-Ins

Check-Ins rely on the accuracy of the device's GPS chip. There are a number of variables that can temporarily throw off the GPS on your child's device.

To calibrate the GPS on your child's Android device, please see instructions below:

  3. Scroll down to find the Bark Kids app.
  4. Tap the app and select the While Using the App option.
