Discord Tests Parental Controls to Monitor Friends and Servers

Discord is testing parental controls that would allow parents to see their child's friends, servers, and messages. The new features are a response to concerns about the safety of children on the platform.

Discord, the popular chat app used by gamers and other online communities, is testing a new set of parental controls that would allow parents to monitor their child's activity on the platform.

The new features, which are currently being tested in the United States, would allow parents to see the names and avatars of their child's friends, the servers they've joined, and the users they've messaged. Parents would not be able to see the content of their child's messages or calls.

The new parental controls are a response to concerns about the safety of children on Discord. The app has been criticized for its lack of age verification and moderation, which has made it a target for predators and other online dangers.

Discord says it is committed to keeping its users safe, and the new parental controls are a step in the right direction. However, some critics say the controls are not enough, and that Discord should do more to protect children on its platform.
