California Legislature Passes Bill Requiring Social Media Companies to Obtain Parental Consent for California-based Children Under 13

On September 8, 2020, AB 1138 , the Parent’s Accountability and Child Protection Act, was enrolled and presented to the California Governor for signature.

If signed into law by the Governor, the bill would require a business that operates a social media website or application, beginning July 1, 2021, to obtain verifiable parental consent for California-based children that the business “actually knows” are under 13 years of age.
