Bark’s watchdog engine uses advanced algorithms to look for a variety of potential issues, such as cyberbullying, sexting, drug-related content, and signs of depression.
If a potential issue is detected, a text/email alert is sent to you to review the issue, along with recommended actions on how to handle the situation.
As a busy parent, reading every text message, post, and email just isn’t realistic.
Instead, Bark was created by parents, for parents to offer a better, easier, and more effective way to keep children safe online.
Created in collaboration with child psychologists, youth advisors, digital media experts, and law enforcement professionals, Bark delivers a research-backed, kid-friendly solution for safeguarding families as technology changes how and where we communicate.
Bark has won awards from The National Parenting Center, Mom’s Choice Awards, and National Parenting Product Awards.
Combining the smartest technologies with a fundamental respect for parents’ time and children’s privacy, Bark alerts parents only when it detects a potential threat – be it sexting, cyberbullying, or even suicidal thoughts.
Unlike traditional monitoring tools that require parents to comb through every single activity or that use keyword searches ignoring context and history, Bark utilizes data science, machine learning, and pattern matching for more accurate alerts. These alerts are combined with research-based, actionable recommendations for addressing the issue head-on, putting more power in parents’ hands to help address digital dangers.
The Smart Way to Keep Kids Safer Online
Bark’s affordable, award-winning service proactively monitors text messages, YouTube, emails, and 24 different social networks for potential safety concerns, so busy parents can save time and gain peace of mind.
