As well as restricting apps, mature content, and showing each device’s location and app usage statistics, the free service also lets parents and guardians set daily screen time limits for each of their kids via the Family Link app.

Google made a big deal of Family Link’s positive reception at its recent Google I/O 2018 developer conference where it also announced several family-focused and digital health-conscious projects.
