The social media giant has faced enough heat from authorities in the past years. Yet, it firmly does its work and continues to impress the community anyway. The new update to Messenger Kids, a kid version of general messenger, will now allow parents to have more control over their kid’s activity.

Parents can now see what all devices their child has logged in and can even log out from them remotely.
Chat History and Contacts
Parents can now see with whom their kid is chatting with, and even the type of it – Texting or Video call. Further, they can see all the contacts in their kids’ messenger and can even block anyone if found inappropriate.
History of Blocked/Unblocked Contacts
Similarly, parents can see their kids activity of blocking/unblocking someone in recent. And if the reported/blocked someone, parents will be notified as so.
Images in Chats
Parents can even see the images/videos that are being sent/received in their kids conversation. Further, if anything seemed inappropriate, can delete and report.
After all, just like our Facebook data, we can even request the kids messenger data in a file which is downloadable. This request will be notified to kids right away.
Facebook has also developed itself about informing the kid about how they’re being tracked. According to their ages, the firm will educate the kids about what information if theirs can be seen.
