Meta just opened a Family Center with Supervision Tools and an Education Hub in Kenya to help families have safer and better experiences.
The family center’s parental monitoring tools provide access to professional-driven services for safety and well-being.
These apps help kids intentionally manage their online time by alerting them when time limits are set, when time is about to expire, and when it’s time to close the app.
They also give parents a way to help their teenagers and make sure they have experiences that are suitable for their age.
The Education Hub addresses issues like digital wellness, relationships, and communication while providing parents, guardians, and teenagers with reliable information at every turn.
The tool makes it easier to navigate today’s online environment and exchange advice on how to make the internet a more helpful place for families, including anything from professional perspective and conversation starters to educational content.
“We are dedicated to making sure that our teenagers are empowered, educated, and safe on the internet,” stated Sylvia Musalagani, Head of Safety Policy for Meta in Africa, the Middle East, and Turkey.
“With our parental supervision tools and education hub that provide tools to support age-appropriate experiences for teens and the knowledge and skills to support teens to navigate the digital world responsibly while building healthier online habits,” she continued, “Meta’s family center aims to help families to build positive online habits together.”
Kenya now becomes the second country in Africa to launch the tools after South Africa, as part of Meta’s global launch of the Family Centre.
