Manage your child's Google Account with Family Link
You can use Family Link to create and manage Google Accounts for children under 13.
How account management works
You can create a Google Account for your child under 13. Then, you can use Family Link to do things like:
- Change your child's Google Account settings: Reset your child's password, and manage certain Google Account settings, like access to websites on Google Chrome.
- Manage your child's Android apps: Decide which apps your child can download or purchase, block or allow apps, and change app permissions.
- Manage your child's Android device screen time: Set a bedtime or daily screen limits, and see how much time your child spends on certain Android apps.
- Check your child's Android device location
- Restrict mature content on Google Play
Note: To see your child's device location or remotely manage their screen time and apps, you need the Family Link app.

- Live in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, or the United States
