Ignore alerts for a particular user, group, or subscription

Bark lets you customize your alert sensitivity settings, and there's also a "Don't alert me to issues with this user, group, subscription, or song" feature. 

Here are some common use cases for it:

  • Joking around with grandma
    Ignore alerts stemming from your kid's conversation with their grandparent.
  • Family group chats
    Share a group text with your kids? Stop Bark from alerting you to messages you've already seen in there.
  • Songs with sensitive lyrics
    Some catchy songs have lyrics depicting depression, for example. If you're not concerned with that song, ignore future alerts for it.
  • YouTube subscriptions to video game channels
    Some video games depict weapons and violence in a way that may not concern you. If that's the case, you can ignore future alerts from that channel.

Ignore future alerts for a user, group, subscription, or song

  1. Open up your parent app / dashboard.
  2. Tap on Alerts.
  3. Tap on the alert that you'd like to ignore going forward (we have sorting filters to help you find the alert if needed). 
  4. Near the top, tap on Don't alert me to issues with this group.
  5. Going forward, Bark will no longer alert you to issues with that user, group, or subscription (unless it is a severe issue).

View or delete an ignored user, group, subscription, or song

  1. Open up your parent app / dashboard.
  2. Tap on your kid's avatar at the top.
  3. Tap Monitoring.
  4. Tap the Settings tab at the top.
  5. Scroll all the way down to the Ignored Users section.
  6. Click the ✖ next to the applicable user, group, or subscription. From now on, Bark will alert you to issues with that user, group, or subscription.
