How To Set Up Yahoo Parental Controls

Yahoo! has ceased the creation of new Yahoo! Family Accounts, which were previously used to create email accounts for kids younger than 13. Because of this, Bark does not recommend using Yahoo! email with younger kids.

If you would like to monitor your 13+ child’s Yahoo! email account, another option would be to know the password to it and log in frequently to check what your child has been sending/receiving. This method, however, can be bypassed if your child deletes messages.

How to Monitor Content

In addition to setting parental controls on your child's device, the next safety layer parents and caregivers should strongly consider is a monitoring solution to assess the content their kids encounter (and produce) across text messages, social media, and email. Bark can do this for you. In Yahoo! mail, Bark monitors the emails your child sends and receives including attachments.
