Google Family Link: FREE App to MONITOR student eletronic devices

Tiger Families:

 

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...and it's FREE!!!

 

 

 Google App Store

https://families.google.com/familylink/


Apple App Store

https://apps.apple.com/us/app/google-family-link/id1150085200

 

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 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 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 devices
