Time to Set Up

Bark Phone

Setting up your kid's Bark Phone for the first time only takes about 5 minutes.

Once their phone is paired to your account, you can quickly make changes to their apps, schedule, and other rules right from your phone!

Bark Premium

Bark Premium offers layered protection — the device layer (the phone's saved texts, photos, and videos) and the account layer (think Gmail, Instagram). 

Start by setting up your kid's phones and tablets. Depending on the type of device, setup time may vary.

Then, connect your children’s email and social media accounts, which only takes a few minutes per account. (Each additional account you connect will be faster since you'll know the steps a little better!)

Bark Jr

Installing the bark Bark Kids app on your kid's phone or tablet only takes about 5 minutes. 

Bark Home

When setting up the Bark Home for the first time, it may take up to an hour to go through identifying devices and applying your rules. You can always take a break and come back to us at any time!

After the first-time setup, any new devices that connect to your home Wi-Fi should only take a few minutes to set up.
