Google Pays $170M Settlement to FTC: The FTC fined to Google to pay over separate YouTube kid’s channels, the researchers said that video site had knowingly and illegally targeted personal data from the kids and used for generating more revenue from advertising.
These changes are inadequate for protecting children’s privacy. The New York’s attorney general and Federal Trade Commission had accused YouTube of these changes to violating Children’s Online Privacy Protection.
The regulator’s comment on YouTube which is owned by Google Company had said that YouTube illegally gathered children’s data from their ID codes and used to track more web browsing without their parents. YouTube already marketed to advertisers as a top destination for young children. YouTube made millions of dollars profit by targeted children’s information and kids’ channels with advertisements.
YouTube knows that there is no big fine against our profit, so they will agree to pay $170M million penalties. With the two contributions of $136 million going to trade commission and $34 million to New York State.
According to children’s privacy cases, this is the largest penalty as compared to another famous app TikTok is pay for $5.7 million. YouTube also working to create the system to asks the channel owner to identify the children’s content otherwise, ads are not placed in such videos.
YouTube also takes permission from parents, before collecting children’s details.

It contains a very high privacy settlement round about $5 billion on YouTube.

Currently, Americans receive approximately 5.1 billion automated calls in one month. Many companies are using his iPhone to learn their number, location, email and the big thing is IP address.
