What if my child uninstalls Bark?

If your child uninstalls the Bark for Kids app, you will be alerted. You can set a parental passcode to prevent uninstalling the app without your consent by downloading a third-party app that locks apps from uninstallation unless you type in a password.
If the child changes their passwords to their email or social media accounts and Bark stops monitoring, the parent will receive an alert instructing to check the connection and update passwords.

Can you please provide (current/recommended) examples of apps that can prevent this without parental password?

Hi, @mchengster. It sounds like you are monitoring an Android with Bark? Bark will alert you if for some reason we aren’t able to communicate with your child’s Bark app. :slight_smile: While Bark doesn’t provide any restrictions and has no affiliation with any uninstall blockers, the following Android apps have been used by other Bark parents with success:

I do hope this helps! You can always reach Bark support at www.bark.us/contact. Thank you!
