FlashGet Parental Control Getting Started

This is a beginner’s guide to using FlashGet Parental Control. Discover the ultimate solution for modern parenting with FlashGet Parental Control! Keep a close eye on your children’s online activities, easily manage their screen time and app usage, set geofences for their safety, and stay informed of their whereabouts at all times.

Google Play App Store

Stage1: Install FlashGet Parental Control

Let’s start by installing the FlashGet Parental Control app. The app must be installed simultaneously on the parent’s and kids’ mobile phones.

Step 1 Download and install FlashGet Parental Control on the parent’s device

When the parent uses an Android phone

You can search for FlashGet Parental Control on Google Play or visit our download page.

When the parent uses an iPhone or iPad

You can only download FlashGet Parental Control on App Store. You can visit App Store to search for our app or go to our download page.

Step 2 Get FlashGet account

Before using FlashGet Parental Control, you must register a FlashGet account. If you have the account already, please click Sign in.

Step 3 Bind kid’s device to parent’s device

As of now, our parental control app only supports managing children’s Android devices. However, we are also working on adapting the app to support Apple devices within the next few months. This will allow parents to monitor their children’s activities on any device they use.

  1. Open a browser on your kid’s device, and enter flashget.co. Please be aware that it’s not flashget.com.
  2. Click the download button to download the APK file.


If you see a popup prompt of “unknown sources,” tap on Settings > toggle on Downloads from Unknown Sources or something similar that contains “Unknown Sources.”

Because FlashGet Kids is not on the Google Play store, Google defines APK files installed from third-party channels as from unknown sources, and you need to allow installation from unknown sources in the settings to continue.

  1. After installation, click “Done” to open FlashGet Kids on your child’s device.


Can’t find the FlashGet Kids icon after installation?

If you can’t find FlashGet Kids on your child’s device, follow the methods below:

Method 1. You can enter *#*#247543#*#* on the dial pad of your child’s device to open FlashGet Kids. Please note this method is only available on some devices.

Method 2. Open a browser on your kid’s device, and enter flashget.co/openkids.

  1. Enter the binding code to bind the child’s device to the parent’s account. The pairing code has nine digits which shows on the parent’s app.
  2. Tap “OK” to start parental control or click “Bind next” to bind more devices. You can also tap the Add icon at the upper right corner of your dashboard to bind more devices.

Stage2: Set Up FlashGet Parental Control

Step1 on-screen instructions

Step2 Hide and continue

Tap “Hide and continue” after finishing the setup. So the FlashGet Kids’ icon will not appear on your kid’s phone screen.

Step3 Set up keepalive

Set up a keepalive setting to make FlashGet Kids run continuously in the background of a device. This ensures that FlashGet Kids remains effective at all times in protecting children.
