How to Monitor Images in Messenger Kids

Jamie Jamie (33)

Facebook's Messenger Kids is a free app that allows children to make video calls and send messages on smartphones and tablets, but with more control than just giving your child access to a phone. With Messenger Kids, parents can control their child's online experience through a variety of functions that allow them to have a safe and secure online experience.

One of the features that allows your child to have a safe experience is monitoring photos your child sends and receives. Parents and guardians can do this from the Parent Dashboard to review every photo sent from and received by your child's Messenger Kids account.

  1. Go to the Facebook app and click on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right.
  2. Select 'Messenger Kids'
  3. Click your child's photo.
  4. Click 'Activity.'
  5. You'll see the images under 'Images' in 'Chats'

If you've found an inappropriate image that you want to remove: 1. Click the image 2. Click the icon in the top right corner 3. Click 'Remove Image'

If you feel it is necessary, you can also block that contact in Messenger Kids so they cannot communicate with your child anymore.
