YouTube -Taking Steps To Protect Our Kids' Privacy
It's important to give credit where credit is due. Well done Parents Together - With your efforts, and collective voice, we have gotten YouTube to remove the auto - play feature from YouTube and YouTube Kids, thereby creating 'built - in friction' and reducing the amount of time our kids are glued to their devices. The upcoming changes will also include reminders for kids to take a break from the app and nudges that it might be time for bed, which will be the default for users 13 - 17. YouTube has more to do to keep our kids safe, but these changes makes it less addictive and easier to control for parents.
