YouTube, YouTube Kids Add Safety Measures for Users Under 18

The default upload setting for those 13 through 17 will be gradually adjusted to private uploads


YouTube detailed additional safety measures it is implementing for users under 18 on both the flagship platform and YouTube Kids.

In the coming weeks, the default upload setting for YouTube users between the ages of 13 and 17 will gradually be adjusted to private uploads, meaning that content uploaded can only be seen by those users and whoever they choose.

Users in that age group who wish to make their content public can do so by changing the default upload visibility setting, and YouTube will provide reminders indicating who can see their videos.
