Google sigue añadiendo funciones y aplicaciones enfocadas a mejorar la seguridad de los usuarios de Android. Varios meses después de lanzar Contactos de confianza, que permite compartir la posición de una persona en caso de emergencia, la compañía ha hecho público Family Link, una utilidad pensada para controlar el uso del teléfono móvil o la tableta por parte de los más pequeños de la casa. Puede parecer algo trivial, pero lo cierto es que este tipo de funciones son cada vez más demandadas debido al gran número de niños (algunos bastante pequeños) con un smartphone en el bolsillo.

Lo cierto es que la mayoría de los fabricantes de dispositivos o firmas con su propio sistema operativo ya ofrecen algunas características de supervisión. Family Link va un poco más allá al ofrecer un control granular de las aplicaciones y demandar la implicación del progenitor a la hora de monitorizar el uso del teléfono. No se trata simplemente de prohibir el uso de aplicaciones, sino de estar atento a lo que se hace con ellas.


Pensada principalmente para controlar los dispositivos en manos de niños de 13 años o menos, Family Link permite establecer reglas para controlar el número de horas de uso diarias y las franjas en las que directamente no pueden ser utilizados. También se puede regular la instalación de aplicaciones, solicitando la intervención de los progenitores para aprobar o denegar las descargas desde Google Play. Por último, Family Link proporciona informes de actividad semanales y mensuales para saber mejor qué aplicaciones son las más utilizadas.

Family Link requiere que tanto el dispositivo “maestro” como el del niño en cuestión utilicen Android; los padres pueden utilizar un teléfono o una tableta basada en KitKat, mientras que el dispositivo a monitorizar debe tener Android Nougat instalado o encontrarse en la lista de productos compatibles con Marshmallow (6.1).

Por el momento Family Link solo se puede descargar en Estados Unidos y en fase de pruebas. En cuanto a plataformas alternativas, Google señala que la versión para iOS no se encuentra disponible “por el momento”.
