Family Link is the Android application ecosystem used by Google to implement a parental control system for parents to monitor and control their children's online activity on their mobile devices. To make use of this method of supervision, parents should install Family Link for parents on their phones and pair them with their children's phones using this companion app called Google Family Link for children & teenagers.
After installing their APK, creating a family group and synchronizing both devices using an alphanumeric code, parents will be able to guide their innocent and not-so-innocent kids towards visualizing age-appropriate content, as well as monitor the time they spend using their phone, being able to cut them off if they go too far.
