FTC approves settlement with Google over YouTube kids privacy violations

The Federal Trade Commission has finalized a settlement with Google in its investigation into YouTube for violating federal kids’ privacy laws, according to two people familiar with the matter who were not authorized to discuss it on record.

The settlement finds that Google inadequately protected kids who used its video-streaming service and improperly collected their data in breach of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which prohibits the tracking and targeting of users younger than 13.
