Bark is a parental app/software tool powered by advanced algorithms that proactively alerts parents to common dangers, including cyberbullying, sexting, drug use, Internet predators, depression and suicidal thoughts – and then provides expert recommendations on how to address.
Our product testers had this to say about The Bark: Internet Safety App:
“My son wasn’t happy initially about being tracked, but he found that now that I knew I’d be alerted to any funny business, we were both a little more at ease, especially because I was no longer asking to check his phone every time I thought he might be acting strange.”
“This actually increased our communication about boys, friends, and stuff we’d never talk about before.”
“On one hand I feel like a voyeur, but on the other hand, I now have more information than I’ve ever had about my child, without constantly nagging her about it.”
“I think this is perfect for kids as young as 8 or 9, like as soon as they get an email, a social media account, a cell phone, making this a part of their understanding is so needed. Trying to ask my teenager twins wasn’t easy, but it is worth it for me.”
