The Federal Trade Commission has reportedly finalized a settlement with Google after an investigation found that YouTube was in violation of federal children's privacy laws.




Specifically, the investigation found that YouTube was collecting data of children under the age of 13 on its video platform — a violation of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).




The Washington Post report, which cited two people familiar with the matter, said the fine would likely be in the "multimillion-dollar" mark.

The Federal Trade Commission has reportedly finalized a settlement with Google after an investigation found that YouTube was in violation of children's privacy laws.
Specifically, the investigation found in part that YouTube had been collecting the data of children under the age of 13 — a violation of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
The Washington Post report, which cited two people familiar with the matter, said the fine would likely be in the "multimillion-dollar" range, but the exact amount has yet to be learned. The report indicates that the FTC's three Republican members are in favor of the settlement, while the two Democrats are against it.
