Check-ins are a great addition to Bark to minimize the number of text messages we might exchange with our kids. Rather than a "did you get there?" or "are you there yet?" text, we can rely on a single-click location confirmation from our children to confirm to us that they've safely arrived at their destination.

How to request your child's location?

  1. Open your Bark mobile app or log in to your Bark account at
  2. Go to your Dashboard
  3. For the child you'd like to request their location, click the "Request check-in" button below the child's name. This will send a push notification to the child's phone requesting they open the Bark for Kids app check their location in.
