Flaw in Facebook kids app let children chat with unapproved users

Facebook said Monday that a ’technical error’ allowed thousands of kids who used the company’s messaging app for children to join group chats with people who weren’t approved by their parents. The app, called Messenger Kids, lets children between 6 and 12 years old send messages and video chat with users who their parents accept. Facebook said it has fixed the issue.
