Give rewards Bedroom need tidying? A Dad on May 3, at I think adding family members email addresses in the filters and forwarding all other emails to the parents main email box with a specified folder to collect those emails in the parents main account allows the parent to look through and forward back any emails from outside the Family Circle. No we did not find a solution yet. Annual Unlock all features by paying annually. Did you find a solution? Your email address will not be published.
Here is my own step-by-step guide with screenshots. Start a new Gmail account. Just please, do not use multiple Xs in their email address for obvious reasons. I recommend you NOT list their correct birthday or gender, just to be on the safe side. I did NOT add a picture or any other information about my daughter. Again, for obvious reasons. Remember, you are just creating a way for her to email you and other select family members.
For now, just Jesse and I and our parents are allowed to email her. So if you change it as follows:. And keep the rest of your filter as is, you can delete every email that is NOT from grandparent1, grandparent2, and anyother.
One more tip I would add is that you probably want to add the account itself to the list. Many times I send myself an email from my own account just as a note or if I want to save a picture or something. Any thoughts on how to deal with this? Thank you for this post! As one more suggestion, I would also enable this address as an additional inbox in my personal e-mail inbox using gmail delegation settings. This is what I did, and I set it up so that I can check them on my phone and tablet while I am away from the house. Very much the same thing, both could endanger their life if used incorrectly!
I set up Gmail accounts for my 2 children to use on their iPod several years ago, but only so we could iMessage with them while they were at home or with WiFi access.
I never set up their email to be used on their iPods. Is there a way to contact Google to work with them as a parent to do this without starting new Gmail accounts the ones I set up include their names? When you setup an account, it asks for an old email and also a phone number — if you setup either of these things, they will assist in recovering the account.
Thanks for the article. Filling out online member forms including those for gmail with false information is technically a federal offense. Might also be good idea to contact a senator or representative to change the law. Another reason this is a great idea for tech-illiterate parents who blindly follow instructions from the Internet is because kids are too stupid to reverse this.
I have a blog! But my son has just turned 8. While I want him to be a savvy member of the community, I also want to be there to protect him from those who would take advantage. He knows his email address is filtered. He knows that his email is forwarded to me.
If he wanted to, he could probably undo it. Does your blog contain similar really helpful information with no snark whatsoever? This has been wonderfully helpful. Hi all — I just purchased a Chromebook for my kids and came across this article. After doing a bit of research, I found that you can set up supervised accounts for your kids on a chromebook. You do not need to set up a gmail account for them or anything. The account is under your own, and you can limit or allow access to the web, youtube, etc. They cant do much at all if you restrict the web sites as well.
So it backfired, Google knows everything! This was very helpful. So, instead of deleting it gone, she could still technically read it. I have a teenager, for whom I have setup a supervised user on her Chromebook. She does need access to gmail and has an account. Unfortunately, I am not sure how to fix this issue. Did you find a solution? No we did not find a solution yet. However, we or rather my 14 year old daughter did learn a new loophole — she can access youtube through google slides………. This will allow control over any device, time limits as well as which sites are accessible thru the device.
I suggest you use the age of 13 when setting up the account. Please see this page: In order to protect my parent I had to resort to research on parental control for kids. It is so sad that senior citizens are just as vulnerable as children when it comes to internet access and social media.
Thanks for the tips and information! Hey Julie, great suggestion! Ill be sure to share this article on my website as we get teenagers on the site all the time so this will be a good resource for them and their parents. I tried to sign my nearly 13 year old for a gmail account and it would not let me saying that he did not meet the age requirements. What can I do about this?
It looks like Google is running a beta program for younger kids. Hi and thanks for your advises! BUT somehow it does not works correctly, I mean created filters do not filter at all all mails go to trash, no matter they are filtered or not. And the worst thing is you delete filter but mail acts like it still have it — delete all emails. At large the list of personal information looks like this:.
