Children’s Privacy: Google to give children, parents, guardians more under-age-18 controls

Google announced it will soon allow requests for removal of Google images for anyone under 18 as part of a way to give minors more control of their digital footprint. Other planned changes include: 1) a change to YouTube’s default for ages 13-17 to the most private option; 2) Google Location History will remain off without an option to turn it on for users under age 18; and 3) ad targeting will be blocked based on age, gender or interests of users under age 18.
