Setting up your kid’s first phone, tablet, or online accounts? Teach them how to navigate the internet safely with BrightCanary.
BrightCanary empowers you to guide and protect your kids when they're using YouTube, Google, TikTok, and Instagram by: 1) alerting you when your kids are watching inappropriate content; 2) providing insights into their digital behavior; and 3) giving tailored advice on how to talk to your kids about difficult topics they encounter.
EASY TO INSTALL AND USE
BrightCanary runs on your phone, not your kids’ phones. You connect your kids' social accounts and we’ll take care of the rest — tracking what they’re watching and posting, and alerting you when you need to get involved.
PROTECTS YOUR CHILDREN — AND YOUR TIME
Our advanced AI filters through your kids' social media use to determine if they're consuming something you need to talk with them about — like violence, drug use, alcohol, or self-harm — so you don't have to review every post and message yourself.
HELPS YOU STAY CONNECTED
Improve conversations with your kids by learning about the content and people influencing their opinions. Our AI chatbot Ask the Canary gives you instant advice to talk to your child about anything from violent videos to cyberbullying.
BRIGHTCANARY IS PRIVATE
Your children’s social account login information and personal data never leaves your phone. The BrightCanary app connects to the social media services you’ve configured (like YouTube and TikTok) right from your phone and retrieves the lists of content they’ve watched. Then the lists are anonymized and sent to our servers (without any identifying information about you or your kids) so our AI can scan for questionable content to alert you about.
WORKS GREAT WITH APPLE'S TOOLS
iOS ScreenTime does a great job of setting limits on which apps kids can use and for how long. BrightCanary helps you understand what they’re seeing on YouTube, Google, TikTok and more.
WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT BRIGHTCANARY
"My daughter has always used my YouTube account, but I finally felt it was safe to give her her own account when I started using BrightCanary. It's a great way to give her the independence she wants, but with safeguards.”
— Regina, mom of 1
"I was hesitant about monitoring my son's TikTok account because I don't want him to think I don't trust him, but your service flagged some dangerous videos he was watching and we had a good conversation."
— Ronny, dad of 2
“This app has helped me start conversations with my child about their online activity and taught us both about online responsibility.”
— Shively, mom of 2

Ratings and Reviews
An app I use a lot
This is a good app for understanding what my kids are doing online. Gave it 4 stars only because they haven’t added Snapchat integration yet.
Essential for parents
This app is so helpful for ensuring my child is safe. With so many social media channels with dangerous content, this app is invaluable. I love how I can protect their privacy while ensuring their safety. All of my parent friends are going to love this!
Almost every day on, looking forward to bringing us more surprises!
So many people are using it. It's really good. I've been using it to enjoy working overtime. There's no problem at all!
