Google Password Manager can now be shared amongst a whole family

In a bid to bolster its Family Link parental control app, Google introduces new features, including the ability to share credentials through the Google Password Manager within family groups. The update aims to facilitate seamless collaboration, allowing, for instance, parents to access their children’s school assignments with ease.

Family Link users can now share usernames and passwords among family members, promoting a more integrated digital experience.

Google envisions scenarios where this sharing feature proves beneficial, emphasizing the importance of enhancing collaboration within family units. While the exact release date for this new sharing capability remains unspecified, Google promises it will be available “soon.”

Additionally, Family Link introduces a convenient method for managing parental control options directly from the Google search engine page. Users can now input specific phrases like “parental controls” to access an information box atop the search results, listing linked accounts and offering the ability to adjust settings. This streamlining extends to SafeSearch settings, making it easier for users to toggle content blurring and filtering directly from certain search results pages.

Beyond these updates, Google solidifies its commitment to digital wellbeing and online safety for children by announcing partnerships with renowned educational resources, Sesame Workshop and Highlights Magazine. As part of a $20 million initiative, Google aims to support initiatives promoting digital wellbeing, mental health, and online safety for children of all ages.

Looking ahead, Google plans to collaborate with the Boys & Girls Club of America for interactive events based on resources from Highlights and Be Internet Awesome.

Sesame Workshop is set to launch new resources over the next year, focusing on fostering digital wellbeing and helping children and families implement strategies for healthy, productive use of digital media and AI. These resources will include engaging videos featuring beloved Muppets from Sesame Street. The tech giant’s multifaceted approach reflects a commitment to creating a safer and more enriching digital environment for families.
