Can I lock my child’s account or are there any other safety features?
Parents can help their child to review who can see their posts and information from their profile by using Facebook Privacy Checkup, which can be found under ‘privacy shortcuts’ in the Facebook app.
This handy feature also shows the settings for apps children have logged into with Facebook. By regularly using this feature, parents can ensure more control over their child’s account and in effect ‘lock’ the account to these settings.

protection to give them a fun and safe experience.
