Bark Adapts to Policy Changes at Google
How Will This Affect Your Family?Google’s new policy is affecting every app that requests access to texting/SMS/ features, not just Bark. Here’s how this new update will affect you: If you’re an Android user who already has Bark for Kids installed on your devices... Google is only removing the option for brand-new families to download the Bark for Kids app from the Google Play Store. This will eventually affect how you update the app, however. We’ll be sending out more information on how to do this soon. If you’re an Android user who has not yet installed the Bark for Kids app… Instead of downloading the Bark app from the Google Play Store, you’ll be downloading it for the first time from our website. We’ve created step-by-step instructions you can access here. Bark is always committed to keeping your children safer both online and in real life. And as the technology world changes, we’ll be putting the needs of your family first. Although this is only a small change, we wanted to assure you that we’re adapting with ease. If you have any questions at all, please reach out to our helpful support staff at email@example.com.
