What is Google Family Link? Description of Google Family Link

Whether your children are younger or in their teens, the Family Link app lets you set digital ground rules to help guide them as they learn, play, and explore online. For children under 13 (or the applicable age of consent in your country), Family Link also lets you create a Google Account for your child that's like your account, with access to most Google services. You can:

Guide them to good content
• View their activity - Not all screen time is the same. Help your child make healthy decisions about what they do on their Android device, with activity reports showing how much time they’re spending on their favorite apps.
• Manage their apps - Handy notifications let you approve or block apps your child wants to download from the Google Play Store. You can also manage in-app purchases, and hide specific apps on their device.
• Feed their curiosity - It can be hard to figure out what apps are right for your child, so Family Link shows you teacher-recommended apps on Android that you can add directly to their device.

Keep an eye on screen time
• Set limits - It’s up to you to decide the right amount of screen time for your child. Family Link lets you set time limits and a bedtime for their supervised devices, so you can help them find a good balance.
• Lock their device - Whether it’s time to go play outside, have dinner, or just spend time together, you can remotely lock a supervised device whenever it’s time to take a break.

See where they are
• It’s helpful to be able to find your child when they’re on the go. You can use Family Link to help locate them as long as they’re carrying their Android devices.

Important Information
• Family Link’s tools vary depending on your child’s device. See a list of compatible devices at
• While Family Link helps you manage your child's purchases and downloads from Google Play, they will not need approval to install app updates (including updates that expand permissions), apps you have previously approved, or apps that have been shared in Family Library. Parents should regularly review their child’s installed apps and app permissions in Family Link.
• You should carefully review the apps on your child’s supervised device and disable those you don’t want them to use. Note that you may not be able to disable some pre-installed apps.
• To see the location of your child or teen’s device, it must be powered on, recently active, and connected to the internet.
• Teacher-recommended apps are only available on Android devices in the US to parents of children of certain ages.

Google Family Link Pros

So far so goodUsing this to add safety to my kids chrome books. Working in IT for two decades and Data security for the last few years, I can say that this lets me let my 2 10 year olds to have independence whilst we have peace of mind that there is added safety. Read a few bad reviews but as I run Google for 9 schools, I knew it would work. Good job (again) google 👍.Aiwa1521Version: 1.48.14507

Google Family Link Cons

This is an awful appI’m very disappointed in this app, I never write reviews on apps but this app is so bad I felt the need to warn everyone that it’s a huge waste of time. I’m a parent and this is such a restricting app and it can bring trust issues into your child’s life. If you want to get this app then your child will probably rebel against you. Not only is this a huge waste of time but it ruins your child’s life because they can’t do anything they want. This is a really terrible app so if you want to be a good parent then you should give your child some freedom in life. I cannot stress how disgusting this app is. I hope you take my advice and don’t waste your time on this app..Jejska agajsVersion: 1.61.16100

Typical google poor qualityHonestly, apart from searching the web what other reliable software can google actually build (google for google graveyard for a sad list of their poor track record). This is a great example of their shockingly poor quality design. All we want to do is to manage our 6 year olds account. And indeed the family link app worked, we've linked the account.. Great? Sadly not, if we then go to the child's account we find its disabled because the age is under 13...yes that's why we want to make it. The only option is to say the date is wrong and they are over 18. Isn't the obvious thing to say if the age is too low, link to the family link app????? But no, there's nothing, no help, nothing So now we're totally stuck. Google account is locked and will be deleted in 29 days. Thanks google. Really really helpful..Lh49Version: 1.30.12089
