If you’re already a Mobile Guardian user and want to stop your child logging onto Facebook, then you’re in the right place.

If you are not yet a Mobile Guardian user, then visit our Mobile Guardian for Parents page to learn more. Additionally subscribe and stay up to date on news and features.

Your child can either access Facebook through the web browser, or through the official Facebook app. Some Android phones come with the Facebook app straight out the box and it’s a good idea to check which apps are on the phone before you give it to them.

You can either block the app completely, or allow your child to use it during certain, scheduled hours with the timetable. Here’s how to block Facebook on your child’s phone.

How to block Facebook via the web browser

  1.  Open your Mobile Guardian dashboard
  2. Click on the web security settings page
  3. In the blacklist websites section, enter “www.facebook.com”
  4. Hit the save button

How to block Facebook app

To completely block access to Facebook

  1. Open the Mobile Guardian dashboard
  2. Navigate to application security settings
  3. View  the apps installed on the device
  4. Scroll down, select Facebook and either:

    2. Click ‘scheduled’ to limit when it is used
