Do you have a child that plays apps on a smart phone, talks to your smart home device, or even interacts with the smart TV? Are they under the age of 13?
COPPA is the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, a U.S. federal law enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to protect the privacy of children when they go online. It requires very specific parental consent before websites and apps collect personal information from users under 13-years-old. Personal information can be as little as a screenname or device ID.
Most parents are not aware that many of these apps are OFF LIMITS to kids under 13. This is concerning as these apps will treat your child as an adult online, serving them adult targeted ads and content. Additionally, this makes it almost impossible to know who your child is interacting with online and what they are being exposed to.
