What Parents Are Saying
Bark actually covered much more than other places.
I knew that iPhone parental controls were tougher than Android ones sometimes, so I came to Bark pretty discouraged. But Lexi (my kid) has had her dad’s old iPhone for a while, so I needed to get it monitored right away. Bark actually covered much more than other places. Now back to tweeting at Apple…

My kid has the best iOS coverage out there!
I’ve researched a bunch of parental control options for iPhones and was really confused by all of Apple’s restrictions. Then, I sent an email to the team at Bark and they walked me through all of my options! It made it much easier, and I can relax knowing my kid has the best iOS coverage out there!

Bark really does it all.
I thought the iPhone parental controls that were built into my daughter’s phone would be all I needed to keep her safe, but that was not true at all. I’m really thankful Bark is here to show me anything that might be harmful. Bark really does it all.

Thank you for looking out for us, Bark!!
My 14-year-old asked to get a Twitter account a few weeks ago and I thought that was as boring and harmless as it gets. But BOY was I wrong!!! It turns out he was watching porn on there (and tons of his friends do), and I got an alert right away. Thank you for looking out for us, Bark!! So grateful for your iPhone parental controls!!!
