How to Monitor Microsoft Edge on Computers

Bark Premium Only

  1. Log into the computer under your child's profile.
  2. Download or update edge.svg Edge
  3. On the top right, click the circle-user-solid.svg Profile icon and sign in with your child's account.
  4. Connect your child's email account(s) to Bark.
    This is important because it helps our system identify your child's web browser as their own, which is a crucial step in keeping them safe online.
  5. Once you've connected their email accounts to Bark, log out of your Bark dashboard.
  6. Navigate to microsoft.svg Edge Add-ons.
  7. Find and add Bark for Microsoft Edge and Bark for Microsoft Edge Watchdog.
  8. Click the top right puzzle-piece-solid.svg menu, click on ellipsis-solid.svg next to each Bark add-on, and then Manage extension.
  9. Toggle on the Allow in InPrivate option for each one.
    Don't see that option? It likely means your child's browser has InPrivate Mode disabled (learn more).
  10. Browse 5 - 10 sites on your child's Edge browser.
  11. Consider disabling Guest Mode.
  12. Repeat these steps for any other children who use this computer.

How can I tell it's set up?
