Messenger Kids App Description

With Messenger Kids... Parents Have More Control * Parents approve every contact, so kids can chat in a safer, more controlled environment. * Parents can remove any contact at any time * Parents can use sleep mode to set times when their child cannot use the app. * Messages don't disappear and can't be hidden in case parents would like to check in. * There are no ads or in-app purchases, and the app is free to download. Kids Have More Fun * Kid-appropriate stickers, GIFs, frames and emojis help kids creatively express themselves. * One-on-one or group video calls come to life with fun, interactive masks. * The feature-filled camera lets kids create videos and decorate photos to share with loved ones. Works with Messenger * Parents and parent-approved adults chat with kids through Messenger. * Works on all tablets and smartphones. * No phone number is needed - you only need Wi-Fi. Made Safer for Kids * Creating a Messenger Kids account for a child does not create a Facebook account for them. * Parents and guardians use their own Facebook accounts to create a Messenger Kids account for their child. * Kids have the option to report or block contacts and report inappropriate content. If a child submits a report, their parent or guardian will be notified. * We're always working to improve Messenger Kids. If you'd like to share any feedback with us or for more information, visit

  • Good idea

    By Franklsc
    Great idea. Downloaded this for my son. For nah Sayers who ask why kids need a message app, I got this for my 9 year (who is to young to have his own phone) to be able to reach me when I am out of the house. His dad works nights and I would rather him not not wake him to ask if he can open the graham crackers
  • Not likening it

    By melayna malagar
    My parents put this on my phone and I hate it, the filters make you look ugly, I’m 12 almost 13 NOT 2 almost 3, put filters on there that are more mature, 2 MAKE IT ABLE TO USE BITMOJI 3 why are there monsters that look so weird 4 I feel like I have no freedom and that I’m being stalked, if you can fix those Mabey I’ll use there’s no deficients, Also stop sending me notifications over nothing
  • No. Just, no.

    This app is great for littler kids but not great for kids like me, going into 7th grade. I am right in between the ages for littler kids that use Messenger Kids is definitely more aimed to and between the age limit for social media. It treats you like a baby, and it is WAYYY too overprotective. If parents can look at texts, then why ask to add a contact? I would much rather use Message that comes on my phone. I really only got it to text my younger cousins that aren't old enough to have a phone/tablet. And I still don't use it that much. Maybe make a Messenger Teens or Messenger Preteens, please. Another suggestion, can we choose a picture from the camera roll instead of having to take a picture on the spot for our profile picture?
  • Love it!!

    I love that you have multiple parents
  • Doesn’t work

    By Bbeahm04
    It would be nice if the words actually showed up on my sons screen. Pointless if he can’t read my messages.
  • Sleep timer issues...

    By look at all of the comments
    Started out fun, but once I set the sleep controls it wouldn't let him back on the system even after the timer should have released the app. I changed the time from my phone, still won't let him on. 😕
  • ❤️❤️❤️

    By D00dlebug!!!
    I love this app and how safe it is!!! I use it all of the time to txt my cousins and my friends. It’s absolutely amazing and perfect for people with family far away!!! I just wish they would let you pick a photo from your gallery instead of making you take the photo on the spot.
  • It was good

    By marson0102
    My son decided to call his cousin but he couldn’t hear her. I tried to fix it but it didn’t work. What I’m confused about though is that he used to hear just fine, please fix this.
  • Smart idea

    By Horrible and frustrating
    I like the parental control and it is easy to use this way they cna call or message or video chat and use internet to do it The best desire is that I as the parent get to add who he cna talk to Great idea!!!
