Google Makes Family Link More Widely Available

Google today made its Family Link tool available to parents in the United States without an invitation. Family Link is a service that lets parents set up and monitor their children’s Android smartphones. Parents can use the app to create Google accounts for kids younger than age 13, which are linked to the parent’s Google account. Parents can then approve and block apps from the Google Play Store, control screen time with daily limits, and remotely lock or prevent devices from being used at night. Though parents can now use Family Link from an Android handset or an iPhone, the child’s handset still needs to run Android 7 Nougat and up.
