If you’re the parent of young child and would like a way to keep them safe when they use their phone, Google Family Link may be the option you’ve been looking for. It’s a way to provide a child with a fully capable smartphone that you can control.
If you’ve ever tried to set up a Google account for a child before, you probably already know that Google has a strict age requirement of 13 years old. At that point, you’re faced with two options: lie about their age, or disappoint little Timmy by telling him he can’t have his own account. Mean old Google.
