Watch: How Bark Jr Works


What devices are supported?

Our screen time management feature works on iOS, Android, and Chromebooks. If your child is using an older hand-me-down device, you can check to see if a device is compatible here.

If you’d like to be able to set screen time limits on internet-connected home devices like TVs and gaming consoles, we recommend Bark Home.

Can I block categories of websites along with specific websites?

Yes, our web filtering feature lets you manage access to up to 18 different website categories. Within those categories, you can also create exceptions. For example, you can block all streaming sites but allow Netflix (and vice versa).

What does Bark Jr do?

Bark Jr is an award-winning safety solution that helps keep kids safe online and in real life. With it, you can block websites and apps, set screen time schedules, and set location alerts.

Do these features work outside of the home?

For phones and tablets

Yes! You can manage screen time and filter websites for phones and tablets with the Bark app for Android or iOS, whether your child’s device is connected to a Wi-Fi network or is using cellular data.

Note: Amazon Fire tablets support on-the-go content monitoring, but not on-the-go filtering.

For other internet-connected devices

No — You can only manage screen time and filter websites on home devices like smart TVs, gaming consoles, and more while they’re connected to your family’s Wi-Fi network with the Bark Home device.

Do I need to jailbreak/root my child's phone?

No, you do not need to jailbreak your child's iOS device or root your child’s Android phone in order for Bark to work. As a third-party service, we strive to provide a program that keeps phones working properly and that does not void warranties or terms of service.

How is Bark's screen time feature different from Apple Screen Time or Google Family Link?

With Bark, you can manage your children’s screen time from your own phone via the Bark app or website, regardless of whether you have an iPhone and your kids have an Android (or vice versa).

In terms of web filtering, Apple's Screen Time and Google Family Link web filters only block general content. Bark, on the other hand, breaks down a wide range of categories and exceptions to enable a more customized and refined level of protection.
