What web browser(s) does your child use on their computer?

Google Chrome Browser

If your child uses Chrome on their Chromebook, Mac, or Windows computer, then you can follow these steps to monitor web browsing, including incognito browsing mode.

Microsoft Edge Browser

If your child uses Edge on their Windows or Mac computer, then you can follow these steps to monitor web browsing, including private browsing mode.

Other Browser

If your child does not use Edge nor Chrome on their computer, then Bark cannot monitor their web browsing history at this time. We hope to have support for more web browsers in the future.

For now, consider uninstalling the other web browsers (or blocking them via the built-in parental controls) and only allowing your child to use a web browser that can be monitored by Bark.

For instructions on setting up Windows and/or Mac parental controls, as well as all other available parental controls on the devices and digital services in your home, check out Barkomatic.
