Google Family Link App Description

The Family Link app from Google helps you stay in the loop as your child (under 13) uses their Android device. Family Link lets you create a Google Account for your child that's like your account, with access to most Google services, while also helping you set certain digital ground rules. • Manage the apps your child can use - Approve or block the apps your child wants to download from the Google Play store. • Keep an eye on screen time - See how much time your child spends on their favorite apps with weekly or monthly activity reports, and set daily screen time limits. • Set device bedtime - Remotely lock devices when it's time for bed, or time to take a break. Important Information • Family Link requires an Android device for your child. See list of compatible devices at • While Family Link helps you manage your child's purchases and downloads, they will not need approval to install app updates (including updates that expand permissions), apps you have previously approved, or apps that have been shared in Family Library. Parents should regularly review their child's installed apps and app permissions in Family Link. • You should carefully review the apps on your child's device and disable those you don't want them to use. Note that you may not be able to disable some pre-installed apps. • Some app activity, such as for music players and messaging apps that run in the background, will not be fully tracked with weekly or monthly activity reports.

    I would love a messaging option. To keep in touch with my child when we are not together.

    Great variety of settings. Better than the iPhone.
  • Decisão deve ser dos pais

    By Rafilho
    A prerrogativa de quais aplicativos a criança pode baixar/instalar/usar deve ser dos pais e não do Google. Não faz o menor sentido, por exemplo, proibir a utilização do Youtube pela criança mesmo quando os pais desejam autorizar.
  • Painful and not straightforward

    By Shammabeth
    App is okay. The pairing app on Android is very flaky. I had to endure multiple attempts that kept hanging and the process is anything but straightforward. I could not add my kids existing google is and was forced to create a new id. Doing the same in the Apple ecosystem was far easier and a lot more flexible. Sadly this is as good as it gets with Android.
  • It works.

    Easy to set up. Love the App.
  • Not for iPhone users?

    By Josh Ewing
    It works parents iPhones, but not for kids iPhones??? C’mon Google! Make it compatible with kids iOS devices and existing Google accounts. Seriously why is this even in the AppStore.

    Google will show you what it wants you to see. They will try to control you and you research. They know where you go and they see you went you’ve been good or bad. Just as Santa, google is there. To know everything about you, and sell it.
