COPPA stands for the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. It’s a policy that requires parents be informed about the information that companies collect regarding children online. Parents, as well as companies, need to work to understand COPPA. The policy is intended to make sure that parents have control of their child’s online information and push parents into reading privacy policies.   COPPA stands for the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

At Famigo, we take your privacy seriously; we’ve previously provided developers with ten steps to be COPPA Compliant. COPPA is a policy that affects companies, developers, parents and children– so it’s important to be informed and educated about the law. We’re reposting this handy image from KidSafe, that informs us about COPPA and its purpose within technology. This is a clear and handy informational guide for parents who may be unfamiliar with the policy:
