What to do if parental control is not working?
If you want to protect your kids from harmful content on the internet, you need to be proactive. You can start by being observant about what your children are doing online, and by having a conversation with them about it. If you don't know much about the Internet, it is hard to judge whether your child is engaging in harmful behavior online, and if so, how. This guide has some tips to help you protect your kids, and keep them safe online. Become a parent's eyes. You can't be everywhere at once, so it's important that you observe your children closely. You'll probably need to be more proactive about this when your kids are younger, and spend more time with them. Keep in mind that you don't need to know everything they're doing online. Talk to your children about safe online behavior. Parents can sometimes think that he/she did it to themselves, but it is important to recognize that it is a child's responsibility to use the Internet in a safe manner. Talk to your children about the good things they can do online, as well as what the bad things are. It can be useful to share information from websites such as Net Nanny, so they can see what their peers are doing online. Let them know that you are there to support them and to help them stay safe. Tell your kids why you are doing this. You should also let your children know why you're being so vigilant about their online behavior. You may choose to explain that the Internet is a public place, and that it is very easy for other people to view your children's online activities. You might also want to explain that you have been made aware of concerns about the inappropriate use of social media by young people, and that you want your kids to do the same. Be prepared to talk about this offline. This will help you to stay consistent with your message. If you see your child engaging in unsafe online behavior, it's important that you address this offline. It can be tricky to have an open discussion about online safety when you don't know exactly what you're dealing with.
Does Google Family Link work for children over the age of 13?
Yes. Children under the age of 13 are excluded from Family Link because they can not be expected to understand the significance of sharing data in one service with their parents in a separate service.
How do I see my own or my kids' Family Links? Your own child's Family Link will be the same as the contact email, and it will show up as a blue link with a photo of your child in the same way the normal contacts list does. However, when you hover over a family link, you will get information about the contact, including whether they're on Google Duo. The photo is linked directly to the individual, so there is no other context to share a family portrait with relatives (unless you're talking to them).
Your kids' Family Links will be just like their individual ones (in that a blue link with a photo), except that they will show as 'kid photos', just like any photo taken by a Google Photos app, rather than the photos people take with their phones. How do I know if someone in my family has Family Link? Some people may have already been setup as a Family Link contact, though most people haven't set up the app. To find out if anyone in your family has the app, go to My Account and under Family Links, search for your child. Note that the app is called Family Link, so it might be named something slightly different for a user based on their location. It's also possible for children to switch between the regular and Family Link apps, so you may have multiple apps on your account, one set up as regular contacts, one set up as Family Links, and others set up as both.
Can Family Link still show people's phone numbers? Numbers are still included when Family Link connects you to someone. They will also still be shared when setting up the Family Links for a friend or other contact, and the contact's picture will still include their number, so they appear to "phone in" to your child.
Can I see what's shared when I am part of a Family Link? No, Google does not currently publish details on what is shared when a parent shares their child's data with them. We are actively working on adding this functionality, and expect to add it soon.
Is Google Family Link really free?
Is Google Family Link really for kids or is it more of an information gathering project by the Chinese government? Do you really get Google Family Link for your Android device? Yes, this is a new application and tool that Google has given users, which is available in the Google Play Store. This may be an app for everyone, but the truth about the app is that it doesn't actually exist.
Google offers all kinds of apps in their Play Store, and in case some one asks if something is from China you may say yes. Google Family Link exists but it is not actually a proper application, which means it is nothing but a set of code written on a developer's laptop. This project was created to assist children in China with the education process.
The reason why this project exists is because of the 'Great Firewall of China'. The Great Wall is also called the Great Firewall of China because it was introduced by the Chinese government. It can be a very complex project, which blocks over 98% of all websites from the Chinese internet. What Google wants is to provide alternatives that are free of government censorship. The project is aimed at making it as effortless as possible to access the apps and games from any other country of the world. It is similar to what Apple does with its App Store.
When parents sign up for Google Family Link they will have a lot of restrictions put on them. The most important information that parents need to know is that their children cannot browse anything outside of China. In short, only apps and games are to be downloaded for your children using the Google Family Link service.
Is Google Family Link Free? First of all, there is one way to tell if Google Family Link is really free, but we have to look at Google itself. Google always says when something comes from the People's Republic of China then it's probably going to contain a lot of backdoors or something else, which is not the case here. All the data that your children's phone holds is going to be secure. When children use Google apps on their phones the data they get is secured first. With Google Family Link every time the child runs out of storage space the device automatically cleans its cache. So if you have been worried that the data might end up in the wrong hands because Google Family Link is being used, then you should go ahead with the signup.
How does Family Link work?
Family Link allows two parents to share their children's data between the devices they use and is designed to be a more secure way to share your family's information than using Apple ID or iCloud. It's easier for parents to manage their children's data through Family Link than through the accounts that each device has separately. To access Family Link, choose Family Link in the Share Family Settings on the Home screen and follow the prompts. You can also add Family Link by going to Family Sharing on the iPad or Mac.
To turn off Family Link, choose Set Up Family Link from the Settings app on the Home screen. Where can I find Family Link? From the Home screen, choose Family Link to access Family Link. You can see if Family Link is enabled by selecting View Shared Content, choosing Family Sharing and tapping Info and Security. If you enabled Family Link on your iPhone, iPad or Mac, it's available from the main menu in the Apple ID settings and in the iCloud settings on iOS 12. I enabled Family Link, but I still can't see shared content on my iPad. You should be able to access all content shared on your iPad by tapping View Shared Content from the Home screen and selecting your name from the list of your children. If you don't see the shared content, contact your child's parent to help you resolve this. You'll need their email address and password. You can access their shared content on your iPad by tapping Info in the Share list, tapping View Shared Content and tapping the name of the child.
I can't access shared content on my Mac. If you're having trouble accessing your children's shared content, you may need to update your Apple ID password. In the Settings app on your iPhone, tap Apple ID, enter your current password, then tap Password and sign in again with a new password. Open the App Store on your Mac to update the password and re-enable Family Link.
On iOS 12 and macOS Mojave, you can also enable Family Sharing from the iCloud settings by going to Family Sharing and tapping on Info and Security and then tapping Turn On Family Sharing. Family Link on iOS 9.3 and macOS High Sierra Family Link only works on devices running iOS 9.3 or macOS High Sierra.
How do you stop supervision on Family Link without locking device?
I have supervised a family member for about 5 months now, and I've had issues getting them to turn off supervision and delete their information. I've tried calling multiple times, emailing, and just about everything else. The problem is that they always tell me it will take 4-6 weeks to get the devices/software. They tell me that they are not allowed to download any software until their probation is up, and they can't go to Familylink until they have paid off their fines.
How can I get this taken care of sooner? It's already been over 5 months. I don't think there is anything you can do, until they pay off their fines and get their devices back. I have found, when I ask for the unlock code and they tell me it will take a few weeks, and I ask how many weeks, it is usually 5-6 weeks. I did however, ask for the unlock code and they told me it would take 2 days, and I was waiting over a month before it came through.
You need to contact your local police department and ask if you can install the software yourself. They will then unlock the device and allow you to install the software. Once it is installed, they will need to send a confirmation of the unlock request to the court, which will cause the court to unlock the device.
There is no need to call the people you have been supervising, they cannot unlock the devices without confirmation of the request from the court. If you need to, you can call the court and ask them for the confirmation, but they should be able to tell you the number of days required to get it done.
The only way to stop the supervision is to request the court to close the case. If you do that, then they should take the devices back immediately. If they don't, contact your local police department to see what options you have. I don't know about your state, but the Federal law is pretty clear that once a court orders supervision, you cannot stop it. You could try to revoke the order, but I don't think that is an option. You can also contact the courts, and see what they can do.
Thanks, I am just so frustrated right now because I feel like I am going to go nuts if I keep doing this.
Will Family Link disable when child turns 13?
For the first time since 2023, the Affordable Care Act is going to start requiring that parents have health insurance coverage for their children. On January 1, 2023, if your family doesn't have healthcare coverage, penalties will start increasing. As a parent with dependents, I've tried to prepare for this by creating an adult/family pool/subsidy plan. However, even though our family has been uninsured, I was under the impression that Family Link would not only provide insurance but it would allow me to qualify for a subsidy. I'm not certain if I was incorrect and if so how much more expensive my insurance would be. However, if I'm correct in assuming that my wife and I will be able to qualify for the subsidies, that would mean that we would need to add 2-3 dependent children. Unfortunately, when I attempted to enroll with Family Link for those dependent children, I was informed that I could only enroll for up to 5 children under the age of 19.
I realize that for many of us, including myself, having kids is simply a question of biology and the government can't make us. However, my wife and I both worked hard and were able to afford to provide the financial means to get pregnant at the ages we did. I feel that not being able to enroll in Family Link for my grandchild and his two siblings is discriminatory and should be remedied by the government.
Is this correct? It is incorrect that a child must be covered under the parent's healthcare, however, a child cannot become a member of a spouse's healthcare. You should talk to your spouse about what is available and what is not available to ensure you are clear on the details, before making any changes. As for your question, the government does not provide subsidy based on number of children in the home. The premium for the child is the same as if the child is not in the home. Also, unless you are married you can only sign up for a single plan. If the children are in the same home, they can only enroll for the same plan. This is based on an individual plan and you will only be eligible for a subsidy if you get insurance through an Exchange and have a subsidy on the Exchange.

Can I lock a phone with Family Link?
Is it possible to lock a phone with Family Link? If so, how can I do it? I think what you're asking is if Family Link can lock a device to a specific Google account, and prevent any other users from using the device. The answer is: no. You can't do that.
Family Link is a cloud-based solution, and as such, all the data is held in the cloud. No matter what device you use, the data is always accessible by the intended Google account.
The only way to prevent a specific user from using the device would be to revoke access to the Google account they use. If you want to stop users using your device, consider restricting access to the device by password.
