15 Jun Privacy Expert Urges Australia to Push for Kids Data Protection
Data privacy protection expert Dylan Collins recently urged Australia to follow other countries in making laws that prevent the collection of kids data online.
Collins, the CEO of kids digital media company TotallyAwesome, says that the internet was designed mostly for adults and majority of services are having difficulty coping with the increasing number of minors logging in everyday.
He mentioned that something similar to a “zero-data environment” implemented in China, Europe, and the US will inevitably have to be adopted by Australia, and said that a universal right for children not to be tracked online would be in the horizon in the next 5 years.
