Uses of Family Link

Google Family Link is the internet giant’s very own family parental controls service that enables parents to set parameters for their children’s Android devices.

Below is a list of the Family Link app’s main functions:

  • Help set digital ground rules for children and teens.
  • Set screen time limits, for day or night time device usage.
  • Allow or block specific apps.
  • Locate your child’s device in an instant.

As a family manager, you can manage your family group, create Google accounts for children, supervise your kids, and add another parent to help supervise your kids with Family Link.

Please note though that not all devices are compatible with the Google Family Link app. You can do a quick Google search to review the list of compatible devices for Google Family Link.

And that’s how you set up parental controls using Google Family Link on the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 smartphone.
