Facebook gives parents more control over Messenger Kids
Facebook on Tuesday outlined how it has enhanced parental controls on, its messaging app for children under 13. It comes months after the social network that let thousands of users join group chats that their parents hadn’t approved.
The new features allow parents to check their children’s recent contacts and chat history, a log of images sent within chats (along with the ability to delete anything inappropriate), a list of contacts the child has blocked and the ability to remotely log their child out of the app.
Parents can also download all of their children’s Messenger Kids information in one go, as . The download includes the child’s contacts and any messages, images and videos they’ve sent or received (the child will be informed when their parent does this).
