Why was my child’s video removed?

If our human moderators find that a video goes against our community guidelines, it will be removed from the feed, and you will receive a notification in the parents app. 

From there, you can view the video that was removed at the top of the posts tab of parent monitoring, and see the reasoning for its removal. If you believe we have made a mistake by removing the video, you can dispute it by tapping the dispute for review button. Our team will review the post for a second time to determine if it violates our guidelines. 

How do I set a time limit for my child?

How do I add my child to my account?

Adding a child is the first step after creating your account and allows you to access Parent Authorization and parent monitoring features. 

When you log in, press the blue plus button on the grom family page to add a child. You will be prompted to either create a new child account or log into an existing account.

Creating a new account is easy and the entire process can be completed in the parent experience. Your accounts will be automatically linked when completing the sign up process. Your child will create their Gromatar when they log in on their device for the first time.

  • Have them scan the code on your device and your accounts will be automatically linked!

Parent Authorization Tutorial

Parent Authorization is key to giving your child the full Grom Social experience. With Parent Authorization, your child gains access to all the interactive features such as being able to

  • Post to the public feed (by default they can only save drafts.)
  • Follow and be followed by other Grom users.
  • Interact with posts on the feed (like, comment, share.)
  • Have monitored direct messages with other Grom users.

Parent Authorization is fast and simple. Your child will be prompted to get authorization multiple times throughout the onboarding process and any time they try to use a feature that requires authorization. Your child might ask you to download the app, or, if you are signing them up for an account, you can authorize their account right after linking your profiles.

Log into your account and select the child you are authorizing. Tap the Authorize Account button on any of the parent monitoring tabs. 

Tap the next button on the welcome screen.

You will now enter the Parent Authorization screen. 

  • Your camera view will be on the top of the screen with the prompt below
  • You may be asked for camera access at this point if you haven’t already.
  • Record a video with both you and your child in view, and recite the prompt. 
  • After you finish, press the record button again to stop. Your video will then replay to make sure you are satisfied with it.
  • You can either Submit the Video or press the Back button to re-record.
  • You will then get the verification screen that prompts you to check your email in the next 24 hours. You will receive an email that either approves or denies your child’s authorization. If you are denied, you will be given a reason and have to re-submit a video.
  • Your child will receive a prompt in the app when their authorization was approved or denied.
