New York Introduces Stricter Social Media Privacy Laws for Children

New York has enacted stringent legislation aimed at enhancing social media privacy protections for children. The new law mandates that social media platforms obtain parental consent before collecting or using personal information from users under the age of 16. This initiative aims to safeguard minors’ privacy rights and mitigate risks associated with their online activities, reflecting growing concerns over data privacy in the digital age.

Under the new regulations, social media companies must implement robust mechanisms to verify parental consent and ensure compliance with privacy requirements. Non-compliance with these measures can lead to significant penalties, highlighting the importance for businesses to adopt comprehensive strategies to adhere to the new laws effectively.
