While minor data privacy protection policies and regulations may vary across regions, there’s no disagreement among platforms that younger people should be top of mind when thinking about how to design age-appropriate privacy settings, controls and experiences. Platforms should also design with regulatory requirements in mind. From the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU and the Age Appropriate Design Code (Children’s Code) in the UK, to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and a host of upcoming new state laws in the U.S., protecting young people’s privacy is best accomplished as a collaborative effort between regulators and platforms.
This panel will explore how platforms should think about designing for younger people to ensure they have a safe space to creatively express themselves while meeting privacy, safety and regulatory requirements.
• How to build with age-appropriate design in mind?
• What challenges persist in safeguarding younger people’s privacy across the industry?
• How platforms should think about collaborating with regulators, industry peers and other organisations.
