  5. Follow the on-screen instructions in the Amazon app

On Amazon Fire Tablets, Bark monitors photos, videos, Snapchat private messages, Instagram direct messages and searches, YouTube views and searches, Musically chats, WhatsApp messages, Kik messages, and installed apps (ie we will alert you if your child downloads or uses a risky app on their device). Please connect your child's social media and email accounts to Bark for additional monitoring.

We hope this helps! For additional assistance, please email
