Setting Up Parentals Controls on Vivo Phones



Table of contents:

    Vivo phones have become more popular ever since their initial release in 2009, and the company has expanded its target countries. Additionally, every day, more parents are starting to implement parental controls on their child’s phones. This is in part because they want to make sure that no age-inappropriate content shows up on their child’s phone. Vivo’s growth, combined with parents’ major concerns, has led to the company’s implementation of parental controls into its smartphones. Read the rest of the article to learn how to put parental controls on Vivo phones.


    Different Methods for Putting Parental Controls on Vivo Phones

    Vivo phones have built-in parental control settings that will help you keep your children safe from online threats. The online threats range from mere age-inappropriate media to child grooming. You can use the Google Family Link or the Digital Wellbeing setting in your child’s phone to implement parental controls. You can also read our article on putting parental control on browsers, which applies to Vivo phones’ browsers too. Read the following steps to learn how.


    Digital Wellbeing

    This setting gives you insights into a number of things, such as how many times you’ve picked up your phone and your average screen time. The Digital Wellbeing app comes preinstalled for Android 10 users, but if you use Android 9 and below, download it from Google Play. Let’s see how you can use digital well-being to limit screen time on Vivo phones.

    1. Open Settings
    2. Scroll down and click on Digital Wellbeing
    3. Select Your Digital Wellbeing Tools
    4. Use its features based on your needs


    If you’re curious about the features of Digital well-being on Vivo phones, read the list below.

    • App timer: This feature allows you to set daily screen time restrictions on apps, keeping your child from being addicted to their phone’s screen.
    • Wind down: You can set hours at which the phone’s screen changes to grayscale. Do not Disturb mode can also be activated in the same window.
    • Do not Disturb mode: Notifications can be really distracting when your child is studying. Using this feature, you can turn the notifications silent. This means the phone will not vibrate or make any sounds when a notification is received, and neither will the notification appear on the screen.

    Google Family Link

    The Google Family Link app is part of Android’s parental controls and allows you to set some ground rules for your children to keep them safe from age-inappropriate content. After creating an account, you can add your child’s account and set screen time limits on their Vivo phones, among other features that we’ll explain. Follow the steps below to set up Google Family Link on your child’s Vivo phone.

    1. Open Settings
    2. Scroll down to Digital Wellbeing
    3. Select Parental Controls
    4. Tap Get Started, and after selecting whose phone you’re using (parent or child), download Google Family Link from the Play Store
    5. Follow the tutorial and set up parental control

    Google Family Link offers various features such as SafeSearch on Google and Screen time limit. You will also find the YouTube limitation feature useful, as some parents are looking for ways to restrict YouTube on Vivo phones. However, Family Link has certain limitations. The limitations include not being able to add multiple parents in the parental control settings.

    You can also use third-party apps such as the Safes Parental Control app. Safes allows you to set parental control on your child’s phone from both parents’ phones. Read the next section to learn more about Safes and how it keeps children safe from online threats.

With this app, you can ensure your child’s online experience is as safe and child-friendly as possible.
