Consumer groups file FTC complaint against YouTube for collecting kids’ personal data without parental consent
Twenty-three consumer watchdog groups say Google is not making any effort to comply with COPPA.
A coalition of 23 consumer groups filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission charging YouTube with violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) by collecting personal data on children without parental consent. YouTube is owned by Google.
The complaint was co-filed Monday by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC) and the Center for Digital Democracy.
