Try the free Family Link parental controls app from Google. Whether your children are adolescents or young adults, the Family Link app lets you set digital ground rules remotely from your own device to help guide them as they learn, play and explore online. For children under the age of 13 (or the applicable age of consent in your country), Family Link also lets you create a Google Account for your child that’s like your account, with access to most Google services.
View their app activity − Not all screen time is the same. Help your child make healthy decisions about what they decide to do on their Android device, with activity reports displaying how much time they’re spending on their favourite apps. You can see daily, weekly or monthly reports.
Manage their apps − Handy notifications let you approve or block apps that your child wants to download from the Google Play Store. You can also manage in-app purchases and hide specific apps on their device, all remotely from your own device.
Feed their curiosity − It can be hard to decipher which apps are right for your child, so Family Link shows you teacher-recommended apps on Android that you can add directly to their device.
Set limits − It’s up to you to decide the right amount of screen time for your child. Family Link lets you set time limits and a bedtime for their supervised devices, so you can help them find a good balance.
Lock their device − Whether it’s time to go and play outside, have dinner or just spend time together, you can remotely lock a supervised device whenever it’s time to take a break.
It’s helpful to be able to find your child when they’re on the go. You can use Family Link to help locate them as long as they’re carrying their Android device.
