As a mom of two teenagers, I frequently get asked how I help keep my kids safe online. My answer is simple: Bark. And today I have a unique Bark discount code to share so you can experience the same peace of mind.
What is Bark?
Bark is an app that monitors your child’s texts, chats, emails, and 24+ social media platforms for serious issues like cyberbullying, adult content, sexual predators, profanity, suicidal ideation, and more.
As the parent, you’ll receive text/email alerts only when something problematic occurs online. The key is that you don’t receive full access to everything on your child’s phone, which helps build trust with your child.
How Do Bark Parental Controls Work?
The thing I appreciate most about Bark is that I’m not spying on my children. They are fully aware the software is installed. This awareness invites conversation instead of stalking.
Once your kids’ devices are set up on Bark, you’ll receive notifications if the Bark software detects any potentially harmful images or conversations.
Bark uses advanced machine learning and statistical analysis techniques to recognize potential problems. Keyword analysis alone is not sufficient to detect most issues, which is why Bark is so good at determining when something serious is happening. You also have options with each notification to tell Bark whether that alert was helpful or not.
How Do You Set Up the Bark Software?
Setting up Bark is actually quite simple. After you download the software online to a desktop or laptop, you’ll connect your child’s device via USB cord. You can also monitor social media accounts like Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest and more.
After that, Bark monitors your children’s devices and accounts via WiFi. Something else of note is that the Bark customer service is FABULOUS. I’ve had a few issues here and there with getting things to sync and their customer service team is actually more responsive than I am 🙂
