Facebook hint ated a new chat app named Facebook Messenger Kids on Monday.
It lets materfamilias have more control over who their kids can chat with, which petties your kids won’t have to use the full version of Facebook — where they effectiveness end up talking to strangers or creeps.
The app doesn’t have ads, so Facebook isn’t sharing anything with ad accomplices, and the app also doesn’t have in-app purchases. It meets the Children’s Online Isolation and Protection app guidelines, Facebook said. Still, it’s designed for kids, not teens, which opens up a undamaged debate about whether youngsters really should be using gab apps in the first place.
It’s available for iPhone now in the U.S. and will launch on Android in the go months.
In any case, here’s how Facebook Messenger Kids works.
This is the app; it has a unusual icon than the regular Facebook Messenger.
You’ll emergency to authorize the device using your adult Facebook account start.
Then you’ll enter your child’s rating.
Facebook then shows this cover, which confirms it’ll keep their messages, give you control on the other side of who they can talk to and more.
Next, your kid will snap a model of himself. In this case, it’s my fictional son Joe Consumer.
Then you’ll settle upon a color for the app. I picked green.
This is the pipe screen where your kids can add contacts and take pictures.
This is what it looks identical to when a child asks to add a contact.
This is what you see, as a originator, when you get a request from your child asking to chat with someone.
Here’s my imaginary son Joe Consumer asking me for a ride from the bus.
Stepmothers can’t watch their kids’ conversations but can delete their kids’ friends.
Kids can silently have fun with all sorts of masks.
That’s it! It’s up to you as a stepfather if you want to use it.
