How do Bark's location alerts work?

If you'd like to start keeping track of your child's visits to and from a location, simply add the address to your child's profile in your Bark app. Give the address a name to explain what it is, (for example, "Sarah's house" or "Soccer practice"), and then when your kid starts to move, you'll receive an alert!

How large is the radius for a location?

The radius is adjustable down to 200 meters (~656 feet). This is the perfect size so that you're alerted if they start to change locations, but not so small that you get an alert every time they walk from geometry class to the cafeteria.

What can Bark's location sharing features be used for?

You can use Bark's location tracking features to be alerted to your child's movements throughout their day! Need to know that they got home from school safely? Done. Want to be sure they actually went to their friend's house? You got it. Want to be alerted if they try to sneak out at night? Definitely. The possibilities are truly endless.

What is included in Bark’s location sharing features?

Bark’s location features include real-time tracking on a map, location alerts and check-ins! Combined, they give you peace of mind that comes with knowing that your kid is actually where they're supposed to be at a given time.
