Description

Whether your children are younger or in their teens, the Family Link app lets you set digital ground rules to help guide them as they learn, play, and explore online. For children under 13 (or the applicable age of consent in your country), Family Link also lets you create a Google Account for your child that's like your account, with access to most Google services. You can: Guide them to good content • View their activity - Not all screen time is the same. Help your child make healthy decisions about what they do on their Android device, with activity reports showing how much time they’re spending on their favorite apps. • Manage their apps - Handy notifications let you approve or block apps your child wants to download from the Google Play Store. You can also manage in-app purchases, and hide specific apps on their device. • Feed their curiosity - It can be hard to figure out what apps are right for your child, so Family Link shows you teacher-recommended apps on Android that you can add directly to their device. Keep an eye on screen time • Set limits - It’s up to you to decide the right amount of screen time for your child. Family Link lets you set time limits and a bedtime for their supervised devices, so you can help them find a good balance. • Lock their device - Whether it’s time to go play outside, have dinner, or just spend time together, you can remotely lock a supervised device whenever it’s time to take a break. See where they are • It’s helpful to be able to find your child when they’re on the go. You can use Family Link to help locate them as long as they’re carrying their Android devices. Important Information • Family Link’s tools vary depending on your child’s device. See a list of compatible devices at families.google.com/familylink/setup • While Family Link helps you manage your child's purchases and downloads from Google Play, 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 supervised device and disable those you don’t want them to use. Note that you may not be able to disable some pre-installed apps. • To see the location of your child or teen’s device, it must be powered on, recently active, and connected to the internet. • Teacher-recommended apps are only available on Android devices in the US to parents of children of certain ages.

Love the idea but it doesn’t work

2
Our son has a Phone with this app linking mine and his. I have had it locked, bedtime sad, and even set a time limit. He was still able to play video games and your locking features do not work. I have to remove his phone from him and lock it in a safe because I don’t want him playing video games. I wish your app would just work but it doesn’t. I am not angry with you. Just informing you that this product is not working for us and I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to use different locks and limits and none of them work

Why can’t I remove someone from family link without deleting all its data. It’s ridiculous!

Can’t get it set up

1
During the setup of this app, it tells me to download “Google Family Link for Children and Teens” onto my child’s device. I cannot find any such app in the App Store, so I’m dead in the water with this endeavor.

Poor support for Chromebook

1
Junk. Minimal Chromebook support, mostly set up for a child’s Android device. Apple does it much better!

Emergency Option on family link lock screen

1
Love love the app but on the family link lock screen the emergency button allows to go through contacts and view text messages. Never locks the text message screen so they are able to still carry conversations unlimited. Please fix this. It is the only downfall to the app. Tried finding a way to write someone with no luck, instead of posting on a review. Other than that it is a 5 star.
