Facebook plans to give parents the right to monitor their children through the site.

Facebook has unveiled new plans to add tools and features that enable parents to monitor their children, under the age of 13, months after questions about protecting children's privacy have been raised through the social network app, and the company has said new features will include parents accessing their children's chat history. They will be allowed to follow blocked or unblocked accounts through the application.

According to the British Mirror site, Facebook has made it clear that parents can also see the latest photos or videos sent and received in the app's inbox, and can remove them if necessary.

Facebook acknowledged a gap in Messenger Kids in August, which allowed thousands of children to join group chats, which were not approved by all group members by their parents.

Facebook has been scrutinized by multiple governments for protecting the child's safety on their applications, especially since its plan to extend encryption from start to finish was announced, through all of its messaging services last year.
Again in December, the National Association for Child Restraint NSPCC (National Association for Child Restraint) warned Facebook that it would risk if it continued to plan encryption through all messaging services.

Facebook is thinking of end-to-end encryption on the Messenger and gram app, as well as already-encrypted Watts up – but there was deep concern that this might prevent abuse of abused children.

Of 9259 cases in which police in England and Wales said they were aware of the platform used to mistreat children and sexual offenses for children online, confirming that little more than 4,000 cases were being carried out on Facebook, Ingram or Watsab.

Data – obtained by the charity from requests for information freedom to police forces between April 2018 and 2019 – indicate that 22% were reported on an gram, followed by 19% on Facebook or Messenger.
