FAQs

What type of phone is the Bark Phone?

The Bark Phone is a Samsung A13. We purposely designed it so that it wouldn’t be recognizable as a “kiddie” phone. No one will know it’s a Bark Phone unless you tell them. Bark’s powerful parental controls are all internal — there’s no Bark branding, logos, or other tell-tales that would broadcast it as a kid’s phone. 

It comes with all the standard features of a Samsung A13 phone.

How much does the Bark Phone cost?

Bark Phone plans start at $49/month with no contract required. We have three monthly data options to fit your family’s needs:

  • $49/month for unlimited talk, text, and Wi-Fi only (no data)
  • $59/month for unlimited talk, text, and 4GB data
  • $69/month for unlimited talk, text, and 8GB data
How is a Bark Phone different from a phone with the Bark app?

The Bark Phone is the result of years of experience in the online safety industry and real-life conversations with the people whose opinion counts the most: families raising kids with phones in the digital age. 

We’ve created a device that integrates Bark’s software seamlessly, resulting in a comprehensive and robust parental control experience.

It also comes with exclusive features that weren’t possible with just a downloadable app. The Bark Phone gives parents unprecedented oversight of their child’s online experience, including GPS-powered location tracking, call blocking, contact management, and automatic monitoring for texts and many apps and social media platforms. 

Its native controls are tamper-proof, providing parents with peace of mind that the rules they set stay in place. Bark can’t be deleted, even if you factory reset it.

The best part of the Bark Phone? It grows with your child as they mature. For younger kids, you can keep the phone locked down with as little functionality as a flip phone. As they get older, you can add in additional freedoms, functionality, and apps — or scale back anytime boundaries are needed.

What does the Bark Phone come with?
  • USB-C charging cord
  • Unlimited talk and text
  • Protective case
  • A data plan that fits your family’s needs
  • Bark Premium subscription for the Bark Phone as well as for all of the other devices and accounts in your family
Is the Bark Phone available outside the U.S.?

Right now, the Bark Phone is only available for families located in the U.S.

What apps are available?

You know your child best, which is why the Bark Phone gives you full control over the apps they can access. You can block every app that a Samsung A13 could download, or you can allow them all — or somewhere in between, which is where most families will fall.

How is the Bark Phone different from other kids’ phones?

The Bark Phone is powered by the award-winning technology that made the Bark app a trusted name for families across the world. It’s the result of years of experience understanding what families need and want when it comes to kids’ devices.

Secondly, we made it completely customizable, because every family — and kid — is different. For younger kids, you can make the Bark Phone work essentially like a non-smartphone. As they get older and become ready for more responsibility, you can add in functionality and access to web browsing, apps, social media, and more.

What is the Return & Refund policy?

After contacting Bark to cancel, you’ll receive instructions on how to send the Bark Phone back, along with free shipping.

Please package your Bark Phone (keeping it in its protective case) and charging cord into a box or mailer and use the shipping label to return the package at no cost. The package can be dropped off at any participating FedEx shipping facility.
