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.

Google is allowing my child to make purchases without approval

1
I have “all content” set to require my child to get permission for ALL purchases. After a year we’ve never received a single request and it turns out she’s been purchasing a lot. When I try to email Support it just keeps scrolling and scrolling where every other part of Family Link seems to be working just fine. Not sure what’s going on here!!!

App doesn't unlock Chromebooks

1
After telling me "I'm already a family manager" - WHICH I KNOW! - the app provides NO ability to unlock a Chromebook - it only gives an unlock code that is alphanumeric, and the Chromebook requires a numeric code only. Google should be ashamed with this app.

You cannot remove a child once they get older

This is crazy. You can only add family members, you can never remove them. This is stupid

Esta aplicación se significa que no confías en tus hijos, esto es muy malo ya que si tú no puedes confiar en tu hijo, tu hijo no va confiar en ti, está podría causar muchas problemas con tu hijo, no va confiar en ti por la razón que tú no confías en el

This app does everything that we need it to for our children. Still learning and figuring things out. Will give another update in a few months. Hopefully the security is top notch. But for now we’re able to control majority of what should be handled by an adult. Thanks Google for the extra layer of security.
