iPhone Parental Control App FAQs

What can I do with Bark's parental controls for iOS?

Bark's parental controls for iOS devices give you the power to monitor your child’s online activities in a groundbreaking way. 

Our content monitoring uses advanced AI to scan messages, posts, comments, replies, web searches, and so much more to find potential dangers. If something concerning is found, you’ll get a timely alert so you can check in and make sure everything is okay. Learn more about what Bark monitors on iOS devices here.

In addition to monitoring, Bark also lets you manage screen time, block websites & apps, and track location 24/7.

These key features of our iPhone parental monitoring app work together to build a powerful digital safety net to help you protect your child online and in real life.

Can I remotely control my child's iPad?

With Bark's help, you sure can! Bark is the best iOS parental control app for managing your kid's iPad use.

Whatever you need to do to help protect your child's iPad, Bark can support you.
