A Quick Guide to Bark’s In-Home
Parental Control

Screen Time for Every Device

From TV’s and Nintendos to PlayStations and iPads, Bark In-Home Parental Controls let you manage when your kids can access the internet on all the devices in your house..

Filter Websites

You can allow or block specific websites - or choose from 19 different categories like streaming services, online games, sexual content and more.

Block Games and Apps

Turn off access to apps and games with the tap of a button, whether it’s Netflix on TV, Fortnite on Playstation, or Youtube on a laptop.

Create Automatic Bedtimes

Decide which screen time rules apply when it’s time for bed. This can look like no internet at all or maybe just music or mindfulness apps that will help them wind down.

Set Custom Schedules

Different times of day call for different screen time rules. Limit distractions during the school day, allow gaming apps after homework’s done, and encourage rest after lights out.

Make SafeSearch Mandatory

Your kids won’t be able to turn off SafeSearch on YouTube, Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo across all home devices.

Pause the Internet

When things get hectic around your house, you can pause the internet anytime so your kid can take a breather. Who knows - you might even want to join them.


All existing and new Vilo users now have access to Bark In-Home Parental Controls absolutely free.
