Do you ever feel overwhelmed being a parent in the digital age? Between Snapchat, ever-changing teen slang, and everything in between, it can definitely be hard keeping up with the latest online trends — not to mention dangers.
Fortunately, the team here at Bark (a parental controls company) keeps up with kids, technology, emoji slang, and so much more.
For example, do you know what the 🌽 means? In texts, it’s actually code for “porn” (since it rhymes).
In addition to keeping an eye on the latest teen slang, Bark also lets you: Monitor texts, emails, and social media platforms
Bark scans messages and posts for issues like sexual content, online predators, depression, and more — we can even flag emojis, too! You’ll get an alert if something concerning is found so you can check in with your kid and make sure everything’s okay.
Block website and apps
Prevent access to dangerous websites and apps like Snapchat, Instagram, and more. You can even choose from entire categories (like social media and sexual content) or choose specific sites you want to keep off-limits.
Get location alerts from your kid on the go
Rest easier knowing where your child is throughout the day with automatic location alerts. Whether they’re leaving school, arriving at soccer practice, or getting to their best friend’s house, you’ll receive alerts straight to your phone with the latest updates.
Warmly, The Bark Team
