Bark Announces New Screen Time and Web Filtering Features

Haley Zapal  |  April 06, 2020

The Bark Team is thrilled to announce the launch of two brand new features — screen time management and web filtering! Over the last few years, families have expressed the need for an all-in-one solution to help protect their kids online. And while there are multiple digital safety products on the market, Bark is now the only one that empowers families to monitor content, manage screen time, and filter the web — all with a single service.

How It Works

Our new features give families a digital safety net for their kids by helping protect their online worlds — where they play, where they surf, and where they connect. The features will work on iOS (iPhones, iPads, and iPods) and Android devices.

  • Need to limit your kid’s access to internet browsing? We let you filter out entire categories of websites (like streaming) or just block specific domains (like Netflix).
  • Want to let your kid use social media but block TikTok or Snapchat? Bark's web filter lets you manage your child's access to specific apps and platforms.
  • Want to disable the internet on your child’s device at 10 p.m.? We give you the ability to manage screen time on their devices to suit the needs of your family.
  • Always wanted the ability to turn off the internet connection? We empower you to make sure your kids stay focused during homework time or at the dinner table.

With our screen time management, web filtering, and content monitoring features now offered as one package, parents and guardians can more fully customize their children’s online experiences, giving them an even greater level of confidence when it comes to parenting in a digital world.

Two Ways to Use Bark

All Bark subscribers have access to these features — just head to your dashboard to get started! New customers have two options when signing up for our service:

  • Bark Premium, our comprehensive package, includes content monitoring, screen time management, and web filtering.
  • Bark Jr focuses on screen time management and web filtering.

It’s our sincere hope that your family will benefit from these new offerings, and we’re so excited for you to try them out! If you’re interested in our new screen time management and web filtering features, you can sign up today for for more information!

Bark helps families manage and protect their children’s digital lives.
