For more than 20 years, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) has been the only federal law stopping tech companies from exploiting kids’ data for profit.
Last year, CCFC, Center for Digital Democracy, and our lawyers at Georgetown Law's IPR filed an FTC complaint detailing how Google illegally collects, uses, and profits off of kids’ personal information on YouTube.
We agree with dissenting Commissioners Rohit Chopra and Rebecca Kelly Slaughter that the FTC's settlement with Facebook is not strong enough.
It’s an important victory. But it’s not a complete one.
A new CCFC investigation has revealed deeply troubling findings about Amazon’s Echo Dot Kids, including that Amazon keeps children’s data even after parents try to delete it.
It's the first legislation that recognizes the internet's prevailing business model is inherently bad for children.
Last week, an analysis of hundreds of unsealed court documents by Reveal showed that Facebook had knowingly duped children into making millions of dollars of accidental purchases for years.
Today, in conjunction with a major new study that details a host of concerning practices in apps targeted to young children, CCFC and 21 other consumer and public health advocacy groups called on the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) to investigate the preschool app market.
