Speaking about the Facebook Messenger Supervision Controls, the feature will be available in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada through Meta’s Family Center. It will offer parents access to teen’s privacy and safety settings and they will get notification when there is a change in the contact list of Facebook Messenger and it will also enable parents to monitor the time which the little one’s spend on the platform.
You can also able to manage settings of your little ones including who can message (friends only, friends of friends, or no one) and who can view their stories.
