Tour - Add Your Devices

Adding your family devices

Once you’ve created your account, you will need to visit either the App Store (for iOS devices) or the Google Play Store (for Android devices) to install our Parental Board app on as many family devices as you wish to manage. Our app will guide you through simple steps to join your Family group with your username (email) and password. It's important to understand that there are 2 types of modes that Parental Board can be put into:

  • Parent (administrator): this device’s owner will be able to track and manage other devices in the Family and receive notifications about devices being in emergency or out of a Geofence. Please note that if you use ParentalBoard on a Parent device that we do not require a paid license. 
  • Child (user): this device’s owner will not be able to track or manage other devices in the group, however some application functionality will be still accessible.

If you've followed our onboarding steps, when you enter your username and password, Parental Board will know if you've already selected Child or Parent and apply the settings to the device. These settings can be applied via the following 2 options:

  • Username and Password: once you've selected either Child or Parent, entering your username and password will configure the device based on its user setting.
  • QR Code (Android-only): instead of manually entering your username (email) and password manually, we also generate a QR code in your welcome email. Parental Board has a built-in QR code reader for device enrolment. Just point the camera at the QR Code in your email and we’ll automatically enter your login information. If you misplace your welcome email, you can always find your QR Code in the web dashboard here (login required).
