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.

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. Once you select the child's name for the new device, the first-time pairing will occur! For step-by-step instructions on setting up a new iOS device for monitoring, click here!
