Bark App Updates: Check-Ins

by | May 11, 2017 | Bark App Updates

We’re proud to announce our latest feature, “Check-ins.” With a click of a button your tween or teen can check-in from their current location, letting you know they’ve safely arrived at their destination.

Why Check-Ins?

There are times when your kids go to the mall, a friend’s house, or out to the park when you want to make sure they’ve arrived safely. With a single click, your child can check-in their location to let you know they’ve arrived safely.

Check-ins are a great addition to Bark to minimize the number of text messages you might exchange with your kids. Rather than a “did you get there?” or “are you there yet?” text, you can rely on a single-click location confirmation from your children to confirm to you that they’ve safely arrived at their destination.

Check-ins are also a great way to get your child’s location when they need to be picked up. Have your child check-in and use Bark’s directions link to calculate the best route to your child.

What Do I Need to Do?

If you are not already, sign up for Bark’s monitoring service. Then download the Bark for Kids companion app on your teen or tween’s device. This feature is available for the Android child app here — Bark for Kids, and the iOS child app here —Bark for Kids.
