Peace of mind - A safe network for kids
Unlike existing instant messaging apps, strangers can not text your child on Fennec Messenger until you approve their friend request. You can manage their contacts whenever you need, and there are even more safety features that help your kids enjoy chatting in a safe and controlled environment.More Info for Parents More Info for Parents

At Fennec, we care about your child's online safety and privacy. That's why we included safety features that other instant messaging apps don't.
Block predators and unnecessary advertisements.
Strangers can not friend or talk to your kids. Any friend requests to your kids need your approval first.
You can add or delete contacts from your child's friend list when needed.
Find smart devices.
You can locate your child's smart device in an emergency, whether they're using a smartphone or smartwatch.
Protect your conversations.
Your personal information is protected by secured networks. We do not sell or distribute your personal identifiable information to any other parties. In addition, all sensitive information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
View conversations and avoid bullying
Not all kids know what appropriate internet behavior is. When necessary, you can turn on the View Conversation feature to view your kid's conversations. Help your kids voice their concerns, protect their privacy, avoid internet bullying, and guide them towards proper Internet community behavior. We help you work with your children to create a positive social networking experience.
Worried that your kids may be chatting after bedtime? The Time Restrictions feature lets you limit the time when your kids can chat. For example, you can set up a time restriction from 11 PM to 6 AM; during this time, your child will not be allowed to access chat rooms and will be shown as unavailable for their friends.
Convenient and flexible child account management
You can designate your partner and/or close family members to become a 'Parent' for a child's account and share account management permissions with them. Users in a 'Parent' role can manage a child's online activities together, set up event reminders for the child, and find the child's smart devices.
At Fennec, your privacy is important to us. Fennec Messenger is compliant with the Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). This means that a child's personal identifiable information is never collected without a parent's consent, and parents can delete a child's account when needed.
The Fennec Messenger works as long as the device is connected to the Internet, so all you need is a Wi-Fi network. However, if you want to stay in contact with your child anytime, anywhere, a cellular data plan is required. Please note that you will not be able to locate the child’s smart device if the device is not connected to the Internet.
Yes; as an app designed for kids, it is designed to be compliant with the Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
