Family Link

With the Family Link app from Google, you can stay in the loop as your kid explores on their Android* device. Family Link lets you create a Google Account for your kid that’s like your account, while also helping you set certain digital ground rules that work for your family — like managing the apps your kid can use, keeping an eye on screen time, and setting a bedtime on your kid’s device.

  • Manage the apps your kid can use

    Approve or block the apps your kid wants to download from the Google Play Store.

  • Keep an eye on screen time

    See how much time your kid spends on their favorite apps with weekly or monthly activity reports, and set daily screen time limits for their device.

  • Set device bedtime

    Remotely lock your kid’s device when it’s time to play, study, or sleep.
