How does Bark help families in a tech world?


Bark is a comprehensive parental intelligence solution. Below are a few ways we can help keep your family safe on their devices:

Want key insights into your kid's digital world? 

On the Premium subscription plan, Bark monitors your children’s texts, email, YouTube, and 30+ apps and social media platforms for issues like bullying, sexual predators, suicidal ideation, threats of violence, depression, and more. We use machine learning and advanced statistical techniques to analyze context (not just keywords) to detect potential problems. You can even customize the sensitivity of alerts per child, like having a higher sensitivity to profanity for the youngest of your kids. Click here for more information on what we monitor.

Looking for an app to help you give your kid some much-needed digital downtime?

Families can set screen time limits and create schedules for when their children’s Android, iOS, and Chromebook devices can connect to the internet (through both cell service and Wi-Fi). You can also select which websites and apps are appropriate for your child to access on these devices at particular times. Click here for more information on screen time management

Ever wish there were a way to manage all of the screens in your child’s life —   smart TVs, gaming consoles, tablets, and more — from one place? 

The Bark Home is a small device that connects to your Wi-Fi router. It allows you to manage screen time and filter content on all of the internet-connected devices in your home (like Smart TVs, computers, gaming consoles, phones, tablets, and more). This allows you to enforce screen time on more than just mobile devices. Click here for more information on Bark Home.
