An All-in-One Online Safety App

Founded in 2015 by CEO (and dad of two) Brian Bason, Bark is a parental control app that gives parents the ability to manage every aspect of their kids’ digital worlds. Our monitoring tool scans texts, emails, and 30+ of the most popular apps and social media platforms for issues like bullying, online predators, and more. Parents can also manage screen time and filter websites to help set healthy online boundaries.

Bark For Schools — Our Community Giveback Program

After the tragic shooting in Parkland, Florida, Bark offered its monitoring service to all K-12 public and private schools in the U.S. — at no cost to them or their communities. Today, Bark for Schools is trusted by more than 2,900 districts to help protect their students from digital dangers.
