Children are supposed to be playing games or reading informative stuff which is apt for their age group. However, more and more children are getting on to internet and getting addicted to social media or searching things that are way beyond their age groups. And, all this is quite readily available on internet without any minimum age criteria’s.
Google is rumored to be working to fix the search services so that it becomes apt for kids, and kids under the age of 13 could safely search things on internet. According to the WSJ, Google’s new child-approved services will allow parents to have safer internet and control how their children interact with Google’s products and what information the search giant collects from their child’s activity.
