Keeping an eye on your children today is a hectic job as you cannot really tell what they are up to with their smartphones and basically since you the parent is not always around them To cater to this, Google has updated its Family link parental control app, Google family link in order to support Google’s account for children.
Regarding this, Google announced that:
parents would soon be able to allow or block apps, lock devices, and limit the screen time of their teen’s Android phone, and much more.
Previously, the family link app controls were only available to parents and children younger than 13 years. However, both parents and teens will give their consent to device monitoring. children will be able to turn off the supervision when they want to.
“24-hour lockdown,” though, and Google will inform the parent of the child’s actions. “Ultimately, it’s up to each individual family to have a conversation and decide what’s right for them,”
