Setting up your kid's Bark Phone for the first time only takes about 5 minutes.
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.
- Android and Amazon devices take about 5–10 minutes.
- iPhones and iPads can take up to 20 minutes to set up.
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!)
Installing the Bark Kids app on your kid's phone or tablet only takes about 5 minutes.
After the first-time setup, any new devices that connect to your home Wi-Fi should only take a few minutes to set up.
