Sens. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) unveiled legislation today that would update and strengthen the two-decades-old Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.
Legislators have continually tried to improve COPPA, which prohibits tech companies from collecting location data and other personal information on children under the age of 13 without the consent of a parent and is enforced by the Federal Trade Commission, over the last 20 years. The bill, which passed in 1998 and went into effect in 2000, was last revised in 2012.
