Facebook’s Messenger app for kids is a great app that allows parents to have better control over their kid’s activity on the platform.

Using the multiple parental controls, parents and guardians can monitor who their children talk to, as well as choose their names and profile pictures that appear on the platform.

The downside, however, is that they can’t follow the video calls tiger kids are having.

However, the app is only meant for kids under 13 years of age, so you may want to delete the kid’s account if you have a child who is older.

The process of deletion is straightforward, and you can find the steps in the guide below.
