If you want to check out Family Link, request an invite from the landing page. With tablets and smartphones, kids can access any number of naughty things, but Google's new Family Link would to like to solve potential issues.
The Family Link app sounds a little similar to the Restricted Profiles feature Google unveiled with Android 4.3 back in 2013, but that was more about controlling a device lent to a child, and it was limited to tablets. So the Family Link app is installed on the parent's device, through which they create a new Google Account for their kid - they then they sign in to their kid's device using these new account credentials. The more organized format takes a user's recent searches and it separates them into their own respective categories, such as images, maps, in apps, videos, news, and more.
When your request is granted, you'll install the Family Link app on your phone and use the app to create a new Google account for your child.

Hundreds of protesters also gathered outside the venue to protest Donald Trump's first visit to MI as president. Trump will tour Jackson's home, according to Howard Kittell, president and CEO of the Hermitage mansion.
Family Link has a few usage limitations for now.
Remotely lock your kid's device when it's time to play, study, or sleep. This control app will help parents monitor and control the account use of their child. After receiving an invite, parents with kids under 13 years old can download and try the Family Link app. This includes games, mostly - it specifically does not include "Music Players and Messaging Apps that run in the background".
Google stresses that the app is meant for children under 13, who technically aren't supposed to have their own Google accounts yet, and it's worth reiterating that you need to start with a fresh device for this to work. Parents can also see what apps are being used most often, with monthly or weekly reports available.
