What is Bark Foundations?

When your child's school purchases Bark Foundations, you will receive an email invitation about setting up your free Foundations account. Foundations accounts are able to monitor 15+ of your children’s favorite apps and social media platforms to help keep them safe online and in real life.

When set up, we can alert you about issues like bullying, sexual predators, suicidal ideation, threats of violence, depression, and more on many of your child's email and social media accounts. We use machine learning and advanced statistical techniques to analyze context (not just keywords) to detect potential problems.
