How do I set up codes my child can use to connect with friends on Messenger Kids?

When you enable codes on Messenger Kids, you turn on a 4-word code your child can share with friends. Friends can use the code to request permission to be your child's contact. Friends who enter your child's four word code and their parents will see your child's name, their photo and who manages their account.
To turn codes on or off, use the Messenger Kids Parent Dashboard:
  1. Log into your Facebook account on a computer.
  2. From , click Messenger Kids in the left menu. If you don't see it in your menu, click See More... and scroll down to find it.
  3. Below Accounts you manage, click your child's account on the left.
  4. Click Controls.
  5. Click [Child's] Code.
  6. Click Copy or Get a New Code.
  7. Click Done.
When codes are turned on, your child can see their code any time they tap their profile picture in the Messenger Kids app.
