Project Fi is a virtual network operator by Google, rendering phone, messaging, and data services aided by the use of Wireless and cellular networks belonging to Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Three.

Recently, they introduced provisions for group plans on Project Fi to share one’s phone plan with friends and, now, their entire family, including children under 13 who can be added to the said plan using a Google Account, managed with Project Fi Family Link. Once a child is added, features comprising easy data alerts, seamless switching between networks, and automatic connection to free Wi-Fi hotspots as well as the functions available in the Family Link app, can be enjoyed by both parties. It can also be used to set digital ground rules that are unique to a family.

Some attributes of this plan are:

1. Managing a child’s phone service with Project Fi: Concerns regarding children’s data usage can be solved with this feature as usage can be effortlessly managed, and data alerts can be set for both parties to keep track of how much data they have digitally consumed in a month.

2. Setting digital ground rules for children using Family Link: With the help of the free Family Link app, children’s apps can be kept track of, inclusive of keeping an eye on their screen time and locking their phones when it is time to put their devices away. Management of certain device and account settings are also made possible along with content filters in Chrome, Search, and other Google services.

A few steps are required to set your child up with Project Fi:

  • Creating an account on Project Fi Family Link,
  • Adding one’s child to the Project Fi group plan,
  • Choose a Fi-friendly phone (an old or a new budget-friendly phone such as Moto G6) to get started.
