With your Bark subscription, you have unlimited children, devices, and accounts you can monitor. 

We know some kids may get a new phone or an older sibling's old phone and you're wondering how to adjust Bark to the new change.

Get started

Step 1: Start fresh

Remove the affected phones from your Bark parent dashboard by clicking the grey X to the left of them:

(Don't worry, no information about past alerts will be lost. You can still reference old alerts in your parent dashboard.)

Step 2: Open the Bark Desktop App on your home computer

Here you will see the devices that are associated with each child. 

  • To add a brand new device for monitoring, plug in the device, click Check for Devices, and after it is done scanning, you will see the new device in a new row, as seen below.

    Once you select the child's name for the new device (in Choose child:), the first-time pairing will occur! For step-by-step instructions on setting up a new iOS device for monitoring, click here!
  • To remove a device from monitoring, first remove the connection from your Bark dashboard.

    Next, on the Bark Desktop App, you can change the child's name to Not Monitored from the drop-down menu underneath the device.

    Then, click the 3-dot menu to the right of it, and click Hide Device, as seen below:
  • To switch devices between children, you can click the drop-down menu underneath each device and select the appropriate child's name. For changes to take effect, force a backup to occur!
