Answered by Ricardo McCardle

To change the family manager on Family Link, you will need to follow a few simple steps. Here’s a detailed guide on how to do it:

1. Launch the Family Link app: Open the Family Link app on your device. This app allows you to manage and monitor your child’s digital activities.

2. Access the Family Group settings: In the top left corner of the app, you will find a menu button. Tap on it to open the menu options. From the list, select “Family Group.” This will take you to the settings for your family group.

3. Manage parent privileges: Within the Family Group settings, you will see a list of parents in your family. To change the family manager, you need to select the “Manage parent privileges” option. This allows you to add or remove parents from the group.

4. Add or remove a parent: Once you’re in the parent privileges section, you will have the option to choose someone to add or remove as a parent. Tap on the relevant option based on your intention.

5. Confirm the changes: After selecting the parent you want to add or remove, you will be prompted to confirm your decision. Double-check that you have chosen the correct person and then tap on the “Confirm” button to proceed.

6. Finalize the process: Once you have confirmed the changes, the family manager role will be transferred to the newly added parent or the existing manager will be removed from the role. The app will automatically update the settings accordingly.

Remember, as a family manager, you have significant control and responsibilities in managing your child’s digital experience. It’s important to discuss any changes or decisions with all family members involved to ensure everyone is on the same page.

In my personal experience, I have found the Family Link app to be a helpful tool in managing and monitoring my child’s online activities. It provides peace of mind knowing that I can control and set limits on their device usage. Changing the family manager on Family Link is a straightforward process that can be done within the app itself.
