Ignore Devices from In-Home Filtering

If you have a particular device that you would not like filtered, make sure you ignore it.

Examples of devices that families often ignore are: routers, extenders, printers, smart thermostats, and parent/guardian devices.

You can prevent a device from being filtered by Bark by following the steps below.

Ignoring Devices

STEP 1: Log in and select Bark Home at the top. It will take you right down to the Bark Home section.

STEP 2: Click on Unmanaged.

STEP 3: Look for the device you want to ignore under Unmanaged. If you need help identifying devices, click here.

STEP 4: Select the Ignore button by the device.


Not seeing the device under "Unmanaged"?

  • You may have already assigned the device to a profile. Click on each profile and look for the device under one of the profiles.


  • If you find the device under one of the other profiles, click on it. Then, scroll down and select Belongs to > Ignored > Save.
  • If you don't see an option to change who the device belongs to, it means the device is potentially merged. Try splitting the device up, and then trying these steps again.
  • If you've ignored the device and the device shows up again in your Unmanaged list, it may be due to these reasons.
