Stage1: Install FlashGet Kids
Let’s start by installing the FlashGet Kids app. The app must be installed simultaneously on the parent’s and kids’ mobile phones.
Step 1. Download and install FlashGet Kids for parent on the parent’s device.
When the parent uses an Android phone:
You can search for FlashGet Kids on Google Play or visit our download page on parent’s device.
When the parent uses an iPhone or iPad:
You can only download FlashGet Kids on App Store. You can visit App Store to search for our app or go to our download page on parent’s device.
Step 2. Get a FlashGet account.
Step 3. Bind kid’s device to parent’s device.
As of now, our FlashGet Kids 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.
- Open a browser on your kid’s device, and enter flashget.kids/d. Please be aware that it’s not flashget.com.
- 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 for child 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.
- After installation, click “Done” to open FlashGet Kids (Child’s app) on your child’s device.
If you’re using Android 13 or later, you may fail to click open FlashGet Kids for child directly (The open button is grey or the open button does not work). You can go to phone browser on kid’s device and enter flashget.kids/openkids.
