The Family Link app from Google helps you stay in the loop as your child (under 13) uses their Android device. Family Link lets you create a Google Account for your child that's like your account, with access to most Google services, while also helping you set certain digital ground rules.

• Manage the apps your child can use - Approve or block the apps your child wants to download from the Google Play store.
• Keep an eye on screen time - See how much time your child spends on their favorite apps with weekly or monthly activity reports, and set daily screen time limits.
• Set device bedtime - Remotely lock devices when it's time for bed, or time to take a break.

Important Information

• Family Link requires an Android device for your child. See list of compatible devices at families.google.com/familylink/setup
• While Family Link helps you manage your child's purchases and downloads, they will not need approval to install app updates (including updates that expand permissions), apps you have previously approved, or apps that have been shared in Family Library. Parents should regularly review their child's installed apps and app permissions in Family Link.
• You should carefully review the apps on your child's device and disable those you don't want them to use. Note that you may not be able to disable some pre-installed apps.
• Some app activity, such as for music players and messaging apps that run in the background, will not be fully tracked with weekly or monthly activity reports.

Idiotic migration


I would expect more from a company like Google. My kids already have google accounts with email addresses they use for school, on their chrome books, and devices. It’s completely MORONIC that, to continue using parental controls, that I have to create them NEW google accounts and force them to change email addresses. What kind of fool at Google thought that was a good idea? I work for SAP - and I can tell you this... if I tried to pitch a migration plan that called for customer to have to create all new accounts in order to “upgrade” some service, I’d be laughed out of the presentation, and my team would be told to go back to the drawing board and figure out an actual good migration plan. I have no idea of this FamilyLink service is any good - maybe it is, but because the people running it at Google are clearly not the brightest lights in the Googleplex, I apparently will never know because I don’t have any intention of dealing with making new accounts for my kids, it’s way too much trouble. I’ll just parent the old fashioned way and teach my kids not to do stupid stuff online.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Star app


Bought my son a phone for Xmas was worried about how I was going to monitor it but did not want it to take away from the fact of it being a gift. Was setting up the phone and long and behold I seen the question asking is this a adult or a child phone. I was thinking watch me try to get it and it turn in to some other stuff a waste of time etc. Down load was ok opened it up and been in love with it every since a definitely gotta if you are a parent even has a gps tracker and a shut down setting

Awesome surprise

I was setting up my sons phone and was worried I wouldn’t be able to monitor it as well as I would like but this awesome app was a sweet relief!! This is an amazing app that shows your child’s location helps you keep up with which apps they are downloading and choose if they can and can not download it!! You can lock the phone at anytime and set a bedtime so there’s no sneaking behind tour back it is an awesome app that I have recommend to every parent I know
