Facebook Added a Sleep Mode to Messenger for Kids

Parents can designate times for the app to be inaccessible


Parents now have a way to make sure their offspring aren’t sneaking peeks at Messenger Kids under their blankets while they’re supposed to be asleep.

Product manager Tarunya Govindarajan announced in a Newsroom post that a sleep mode was added to the Messenger Kids application, enabling parents to set predetermined “off times” on the devices used by their children.

Once parents set their designated off times, Messenger Kids will not be accessible to their kids until they end.
