Bark Acquires Router Limits to Create All-in-One Online Safety Solution for Kids
The Bark team is excited to announce that we have recently acquired Router Limits, an online parental control and internet management company. Together, we will be able to create the first comprehensive online safety solution for families in the digital age. In the coming months, Bark will debut screen time management and filtering in addition to our award-winning monitoring technology.
Over the past few years, many families have expressed the need for an all-in-one solution when it comes to protecting their children’s online worlds. There are multiple screen time control options on the market, but giving parents the ability to monitor, control, and manage all with one service will provide unprecedented convenience and efficiency — and help keep kids even safer online and in real life.
Screen Time and Web Content Filtering to Benefit Families
“Together, Bark and Router Limits will be able to offer an unmatched suite of products and services,” said Brian Bason, CEO of Bark. “This partnership paves the way for Bark to emerge as the natural leader in parental intelligence software solutions.”
Router Limits helps families manage all of their connected devices — from screen time controls for kids and web content filtering to bandwidth monitoring and mobile protection. This is a perfect complement to Bark, which helps families monitor their children’s texts, email, YouTube, and 30+ of the most popular apps and social media platforms for digital dangers.
“We’re excited to be able to accelerate the growth of our product to serve not only our existing clients and service providers but Bark’s customers, as well,” said Skylar Walker, CEO of Router Limits. “By joining together, we’re poised to help protect even more families across the U.S. as the premiere parental intelligence service in the digital age.”
