After arriving in the US earlier this year, Google Australia has today announced that Family Link is available in Australia.
Family Link is the easy way for you to control the mobile experience of your child, it lets you set parameters for use including setting a bed time which will let you remotely lock your child’s device when it’s time to play, study, or sleep, or manage what apps they install on their devices. You can also monitor how much time your child spends on their favourite apps, with reports generated on a weekly or monthly basis – and then set limits on those apps.
Google has always had an eye on monitoring childrens online safety, and Family Link allows for another level on mobile devices. Google is seeking active comment from Australian parents on Family link by way of their feedback tool found in the help menu.
If you want to learn more about Family Link you can head over to the Family Link website and check it out, there’s information there on setting up your account and your childs as well.
