  • Text messages (including some deleted ones!)

  • Snapchat (text chats)
  • Instagram (text chats and searches)

Additional platforms like e-mail, Google Hangouts chats, Tumblr, Pinterest, Dropbox, Google Drive, and more can be monitored at the account-level by connecting the accounts to Bark with your child's login credentials! This means that if your child engages in worrisome activity on those platforms on an unmonitored device ⁠— like their friend's phone ⁠— Bark will still alert you! 

Bark can even alert you about potential new accounts or apps your child creates! Click here for more information.

Bark also monitors your child's Android device location when our check-ins feature is enabled
