Whether your children are younger or in their teens, the Family Link app lets you set digital ground rules to help guide them as they learn, play, and explore online. For children under 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. You can: Guide them to good content • View their activity - Not all screen time is the same. Help your child make healthy decisions about what they do on their Android device, with activity reports showing how much time they’re spending on their favorite apps. • Manage their apps - Handy notifications let you approve or block apps your child wants to download from the Google Play Store. You can also manage in-app purchases, and hide specific apps on their device. • Feed their curiosity - It can be hard to figure out what apps are right for your child, so Family Link shows you teacher-recommended apps on Android that you can add directly to their device. Keep an eye on screen time • 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 play outside, have dinner, or just spend time together, you can remotely lock a supervised device whenever it’s time to take a break. See where they are • 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 devices. Important Information • Family Link’s tools vary depending on your child’s device. See a list of compatible devices at • While Family Link helps you manage your child's purchases and downloads from Google Play, 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 supervised device and disable those you don’t want them to use. Note that you may not be able to disable some pre-installed apps. • To see the location of your child or teen’s device, it must be powered on, recently active, and connected to the internet. • Teacher-recommended apps are only available on Android devices in the US to parents of children of certain ages.

  • Doesn’t work

    By bernardeena
    Kids can use all the apps even when time is up, useless
  • So far so good

    By aiwa1521
    Using this to add safety to my kids chrome books. Working in IT for two decades and Data security for the last few years, I can say that this lets me let my 2 10 year olds to have independence whilst we have peace of mind that there is added safety. Read a few bad reviews but as I run Google for 9 schools, I knew it would work. Good job (again) google 👍
  • Censorship stops viewing KS1 videos

    By ga4566
    Lazy censorship of videos and content stops the kids being able to watch educational videos and benefit from the device, they are stuck watching bland content. There is no parental over-ride even for martial rated parental guidance (I.e all of tractor ted ks1 videos that only an adult account can access).
  • Really useful in setting limits

    By Elspeth68
    Great tool for setting boundaries and keeping kids safe online. Easy to change time allowed or restrictions when needed. Reassuring to be able to see your child’s location and know that they can’t access inappropriate material.
  • Too complicated and convoluted to set up!

    By prettytony104
    Far too difficult to set up and add a child account! I gave up many time and I not even sure howI finally managed it! Kept getting errors and being told it wasn't allowed etc etc.

    By michymoo 1000
    Tried for ages trying to figure this app out. Nothing works as it says. I have loads of google accounts now which I did not want. I have wasted so much of my time getting no where. I have now given up completely with it! Very disappointed!
  • Family link

    By mbhukmxgk vh
    Hit and miss on the location and appears to be stopping my daughter from accessing the internet when abroad.
  • Family permissions

    By Dom1961
    Good to be able to monitor and control sons new phone activity.
  • Location and activity tracking no longer work

    By dspedroso
    The app was great at first but I no longer can see my child’s app activity nor location (despite battery saver not on, the device is connected, gps is working). Seen this issue flagged here and on google support by many other people months ago. Need to find another location tracker app as she’s becoming more independent spending more time outside and I need to see where she is for my peace of mind.
  • Great app

    By carmensmum
    Really great to monitor child’s screen time and can give you their location rapidly
