Google’s Family Link, the app that allows parents to setup, manage and monitor their children’s accounts on Android devices has had a big expansion today. All 28 European Union countries now have the app available to them in their local Google Play Store.
For those that aren’t familiar with it, Family Link allows parents to create an account for their children on Android devices (and Chromebooks too) that can restrict access to certain types of apps, limit their device screen time, and even put the devices asleep at a certain time. It is all part of Google’s effort to keep kids safe online but also as part of digital wellbeing by not being in front of their screens all the time.
