Time 1 Minute Read

According to media reports, the Federal Trade Commission has approved a multimillion dollar fine as part of a settlement with Google related to the FTC’s investigation into YouTube’s children’s data privacy practices. The FTC found that, in violation of COPPA, Google had failed to adequately protect children under 13 who used the video-streaming service and improperly collected their data.

The FTC vote was 3-2, with the FTC’s three Republicans voting in support of the settlement and the two Democrats voting against it. The settlement has not been finalized by the Justice Department.
