Apple requires the use of app-specific passwords when connecting iCloud e-mail accounts to third parties like Bark.
Note: this only monitors e-mail activity -- not iPhone activity. To monitor iPhone activity, see here.
Before creating the password, you will have to enable two-factor authentication for the child's iCloud account. Check out this walkthrough on how to enable two-factor authentication: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204915
Once you have two-factor authentication turned on, login to your child's Apple ID account page with their Apple ID and password. You may do so by going to appleid.apple.com
Next, generate the app-specific password needed to add your child's account to Bark:
- Under the Security section, you'll see App-Specific Passwords. Click on "Generate Password".
- Type in "Bark" and then click "Create."
- A 16-character password will be generated. Right-click Copy this password:
- Paste into Bark's connection window for iCloud emails, seen below:
