Google will pay $170 million to settle allegations that YouTube illegally collected kids’ data without their parents consent | Business Insider

YouTube has allegedly violated children’s privacy laws by collecting the data of young users without their parents’ consent.  A part of the settlement requires YouTube to better identify videos that are directed towards children.  Content will need to be flagged if it targets a younger audience, like videos that feature games and toys.  Creators will also have to notify YouTube if their content is made for kids.  YouTube has considered transitioning all children’s content to a different platform, YouTube Kids.
