Facebook introduces ''Sleep Mode'' for parents in Messenger Kids

  • Facebook wants children to take breaks from Messenger Kids

However, before enforcing such a feature, Facebook urges all the parents to have conversations with their children. For more guidance and resources, visit our Parents Portal at facebook.com/safety/parents. The app already has some built-in tools for parents, including giving them the ability to control their child's contact list.

The company says parents can now specify the times kids aren't allowed on - either as a one-time restriction or something recurring, such as after 9 p.m. every school night. The social network giant has released this apps for the children under 13 years of age who also can get together with their little friends and can interact with them using this app. This function will provide for an even more contained experience on the app. Starting this week, turning the search option off within the app will limit the channels children can access to a roster that has been verified by the YouTube Kids team. Sleep mode offers the same to the parents, where the set off times will make the app inaccessible to kids for the respective time period.

When the Messenger Kids app is in Sleep Mode, kids will be unable to send or receive messages or video calls.

The new sleep mode will allow parents to set predetermined times that Messenger Kids can not be used, whether that's a blocked out time for homework, during the night, or other times decided upon by the guardian. Then, you can set the times that you want your child to not have access to the device.

Facebook's Messenger Kids app is displayed on an iPhone in NY on February 16, 2018.

What do you think of the idea of Messenger Kids in general? When they attempt to access the app, they'll come across a message asking them to come back later, and letting them know it's in sleep mode presently.

Parents can access all of their controls from the Messenger Kids controls in the main Facebook app.

The social media platform's Messenger Kids app is getting a pretty nice update in the near future. Parents can also delete the account or create a new account for the Kids within the same environment.
