Does Bark work if I have an iPhone and my child has an Android device?

Brandon Hilkert

Yes! Bark works when you have an iPhone and your child has an Android device or vice versa. 

Managing a Bark account for your family is independent of the monitoring or filtering we do against your child(ren)'s connected accounts/devices.

Managing your Bark account:

Parents can use the Bark Parent Android App, Bark Parent iOS App, or Bark website to manage their account on any device (iPhone, Android, computer, etc).

This includes adjusting notification settings, reviewing potential issues, adding accounts and children to monitor, Screen Time & Web Filtering, and more!

Setting up your children's devices and accounts with Bark's Content Monitoring:

To monitor a child's Android device, download the Bark for Kids app onto their device.

To monitor a child's iOS device, install the Bark Desktop app onto a Windows or Mac computer and follow the instructions

To monitor a child's email and social media accounts, simply add them via your dashboard. For more information, check out this walkthrough!

Setting up your children's devices with Bark's Screen Time & Web Filtering:

Below you can select the device you'd like to set up with Bark's Screen Time & Web Filtering controls, and it will take you to a walkthrough video and guide for that device.
