You're a parent. You use Google Family Link to help provide parental controls on your child's Android devices.

(As Google admits, no parental-control software is perfect. Therefore, you also keep all your child's devices in your own bedroom every night, until the child is old enough to need overnight smartphone access.)

It's true that you can use the "Family Link for Parents" app to change your child's Family Link rules. But perhaps you'd rather not use any app.

How can you change your child's Family Link rules using a web browser?

It sounds like this question is off-topic for Parenting SE. I have reposted the question elsewhere.

    I’m voting to close this question because it is about using a specific website, not a general Parenting question. – Joe Mar 31 at 2:24
  • @Joe: Questions about educational software are technically on-topic here. ❧ Please see "What topics can I ask about here?" and scroll down to the words "educational software". ❧ Might you be willing to please retract your close vote? – tealhill supports Monica Mar 31 at 2:38
  • I’m afraid that we are not the right place - software is on topic if the parenting aspect is in focus (so asking about the merits of parental control or how to choose the right kind of game for a child). If it’s about using said software and the question would be the same if you substitute software for another target group, it’s off-topic. – Stephie Mar 31 at 5:25

  1. Log into the parent's Google account (not the child's Google account).
  2. Visit https://families.google.com/families.
  3. Click on the child's profile picture.
  4. Scroll down to "Parental settings".

Some settings, such as screen-time limits, will be missing. If you'd like to configure these settings, you'll need to use the "Family Link for Parents" app. (Source.)
