Facebook Expands Parental Controls for Messenger Kids - [internet]
04:29 PM EST - Feb,04 2020 - post a comment

Facebook today launched a major update to Messenger Kids, its messaging app designed for kids 13 and under. While the original app simply gave parents control over who their kids could chat with, the new Parent Dashboard lets parents monitor everything except the text of messages themselves. Parents can now view a log of all photos and videos sent and received, along with delete and report options. Parents can also see "who your child is chatting with, whether they are video chatting or sending messages and how frequently those conversations happened over the past 30 days." Parents can also download a full copy of their child's information, including full message content; the child will be alerted to this action with a notification in the Messenger Kids app. Facebook also added remote device logout and improved information on who a child has blocked and/or reported.
New Parent Dashboard features include: 

  • Recent Contacts and Chat History: See who your child is chatting with, whether they are video chatting or sending messages and how frequently those conversations happened over the past 30 days. 
  • Log of Images in Chats: See the most recent photos and videos your child has sent and received in their inbox. If you believe an image or video is not appropriate for your child, you can remove it from your child's message thread and report it. 
  • Reported and Blocked Contacts History: Access a list of the reporting and blocking actions your child has taken in the app. You'll see a list of the contacts your child has blocked and/or unblocked, if they have reported any messages as well as any contacts they've reported and the reason for their action. Parents will continue to be notified via Messenger if their child blocks or reports someone.
  • Remote Device Logout: See all devices where your child is logged in to Messenger Kids and log out of the app on any device through the Parent Dashboard. (Note: This feature is not meant to control when kids have access to the app try Sleep Mode for that.)
  • Download Your Child's Information: Request a copy of your child's Messenger Kids information, similar to how you can download your own information within the Facebook app. The download will include a list of your child's contacts as well as the messages, images and videos they have sent and received. Your child will be notified through the Messenger Kids app when you request this information.
