In order for the Bark for Kids app to fully monitor your child's Amazon Fire tablet, we will need to have Accessibility enabled. For a full walkthrough on how to set up an Amazon Fire tablet for monitoring, check out this article.
STEP 1: Access your child's Amazon Fire tablet.
STEP 2: Tap on Settings.
STEP 3: Tap on Accessibility.
STEP 4: Scroll down to Services, and tap on Bark.
- Tap the slider to enable Bark.
- Select OK.
STEP 5: Fine-tuning.
To test the monitoring or to adjust settings, including whether Bark is using Wi-Fi or cellular data, open the Bark for Kids app and tap the settings icon (see images below):
Descriptions of settings:
- Upload over Wi-Fi only: If your child's device needs to conserve cellular data use, then you may consider turning on the setting of "Upload over Wi-Fi only." Otherwise, leave disabled.
- Test monitoring: If you want to make sure the Amazon Fire device monitoring is set up properly, tap on "Test monitoring." A message will then pop up letting you know if it looks good!
NOTE: Do NOT logout of the Bark for Kids app, or monitoring will be impacted.
