Features impacted by COPPA: Made for Kids content

Last September, we announced a series of changes to better protect kids and their privacy on YouTube and to address concerns raised by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC). To comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), certain features may be restricted or turned off on content that’s made for kids.

  1. Hi all, here are some of the top questions we’ve seen many of you ask recently. We’ll keep this list updated as we get more questions. More FAQs can be found on the Creators Channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdIlQ9kq4F4 and the help center https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/9684541.

    Q: Isn’t this what YouTube Kids is for?
    The FTC raised concerns that kids may be watching kids content on YouTube.com unsupervised (as opposed to the YouTube Kids App). To ensure our data practices protect kids’ privacy for all "Made for Kids” content, we must apply these changes to YouTube.com.

    Q: How have Creators decided which videos are “Made for kids” or not?
    A: Creators know their content the best, so we’re asking them to set their content as made for kids or not. Based on guidance from the FTC, Creators are setting the audience for their content based on both about who they’re trying to reach (is their content for kids to enjoy or more for parents/adults) AND what’s in the content (does it have actors, characters, activities, games, songs or stories for kids particularly). YouTube may override a video’s audience setting if we detect an error or abuse. More on how to set your audience here: https://yt.be/help/9Sgi

    Q: Does this affect every country?
    A: Yes, this is a global update. These changes address concerns raised by the FTC regarding YouTube’s compliance with COPPA. While this is a US law, we’re making changes to our data practices globally that will better protect kids’ privacy on YouTube.com: https://yt.be/Bnqp

  2. So if YouTube isn't for people under 13, then why is content being marked FOR KIDS? Have a think about that LAUREN.

  3. Stories, Notification Bell, and Community Tab are all personalized so why the hell do you guys keep subscriptions then and what does the mini player have to do with this

  4. What even is this.It's the parents job to look after their kids online, not people who make content and entertainment for the whole world to see.

  5. i was trying to look at cocomelon memes but there wernt any comments there was also swearing and stuff too

  6. When's they will remove coppa
    Let the YouTube back normal
    And for the kids let them use kids YouTube OK
    Everyone dislikes
    Who agree that coppa is a dumb

  7. I'm tired of accidentally clicking on this video and having that woman's face burned into my brain, make it stop. I pay for my subscription for a reason.

  8. YouTube, sinceramente, poxa, eu sei que é dificil conteúdo mais de 18, mas, vcs tem que punir essas pessoas que fazem mais de 18, e não tirar essas funções deles.

  9. so because of my voice, you disable comments? oh makes sense wowwwww but Ryan’s Toy Review shows their voice and hey still comments. I don’t swear. I know kids are watching, I put warnings. So what am I doing wrong? Nothing.
