Family Link is a parental control system based on a Google account. It is designed for parents to place limits on their children’s devices, to prevent them from developing harmful digital habits.

Through Family Link, parents can limit the time of use, restrict content or block Google search..
But, multiple reports are pointing out that not all the restrictions set by parents are working. The most noted is the restriction to the capabilities of Google Search.
