No parent, child, or software tool is ever perfect. It is possible that something could be missed, or that you'll get an occasional alert from us when no actual issue exists. We are a tool to help families stay safer, not a replacement for an active, engaged parent.
Bark stands apart from other products that claim to help keep children safe online by alerting parents to not only serious issues but also potentially life-threatening situations. We’ve had multiple parents write in to tell us that Bark alerted them to texts in which their kids expressed suicidal thoughts. We’ve also helped parents discover that their kids were talking to sexual predators, enabling them to intervene in time.
