Digital Device Contract Template

Customize it for your family to set expectations and boundaries around computer, phone and tablet use

As parents of tweens and teens, it's important to ensure our kids are staying safe online. One helpful tool is a digital contract that outlines expectations for both the parent and child when it comes to using devices like computers, smartphones and tablets. It covers topics like the hours and locations devices can be used, what information will be shared with parents, and what actions on the device are allowed.

A digital device contract is a great way to start an open dialogue about how our children should interact in the ever-changing world of social media and other online platforms. It also helps set clear boundaries on what is acceptable behavior while providing guidelines for appropriate use of technology.

To help you create this contract with your kids, we've created an editable Digital Device Template in both Word and Google Doc versions — click the button associated with the version you prefer, and then customize the doc as needed.

Easy to install and use

BrightCanary runs on your phone, not your kids’ devices. 
You connect your kids' Google or social accounts and we’ll take care of the rest — tracking what they’re watching and posting, and alerting you when you need to get involved.

Protects your children — and your time

Our advanced AI filters through and synthesizes your kids' searches, DMs, videos and comments to determine if they're consuming something you need to talk with them about — like violence, racism, alcohol, and self-harm — so you don't have to review it all yourself.

Helps you stay connected

Improve conversations with your kids by getting visibility into the content and people influencing their opinions, so you can speak their language when you need to discuss an important topic.
