Children’s Privacy: Common Sense Media finds most popular kid tech companies falling short on privacy safeguards

Common Sense Media’s 2021 State of Kids’ privacy report shows privacy protection provided by companies is far below parental expectations and doesn’t meet Common Sense’s minimum privacy threshold. The organization evaluated 200 of the most popular kids tech and edtech applications and services over 5-years and, while overall median scores increased year-over-year by 20%, 74% did not meet Common Sense’s minimum privacy recommendations.
