Family Link allows parents to create a Google account for their children, which is necessary for the operation of smartphones on Android, and from their device take full control of it. This means that without the knowledge of the adult, the child will not be able to install any application - only those that one of the parents remotely approved. In addition, Family Link shows how much time children spend in front of the screens of their smartphones and in which applications they "sit", and also allows you to set the time at which it is time for them to sleep - after this hour the child will not be able to use the device. There is also the possibility of remote locking the smartphone at any time.
For Family Link to work, you need any two smartphones on Android 7.0 Nougat (one for the parent, the other for the child). The application must be downloaded to both devices and a special account must be created in it. While the program is being tested and is available in Early Access - to be able to download it, you must submit an application. One of the conditions of use is that the child must be over 13 years old.
Family Link is Amazon's answer, which has developed parental controls for its Kindle devices. The company even has a dedicated tablet, most of which can be controlled remotely.
Family Link's global release date has yet to be announced.>
