KIDS ONLINE SAFETY & YOUTUBE

We want to inform you of a disturbing trend on YouTube: inappropriate videos targeted toward children. This disturbing trend features avatars of kid-friendly characters like Spider Man and Elsa, these videos aim to lure children into viewing violent, sexual or otherwise upsetting content. Some have made their way to Youtube Kids via keyword tags like “education,” “family,” or “nursery rhymes.”

We know that kids love YouTube. And for good reason! At its best, the platform is an ever-expanding resource for age-appropriate entertainment, education and discovery. But anyone can upload to YouTube, and no algorithm can guarantee child-safety.

So what can we do?

We recommend that parents have a conversation with their kids about disturbing videos lurking on YouTube. It’s important for children to recognize inappropriate content when they see it, and to feel safe reporting it to a parent.

Should you stumble upon an upsetting video targeted toward children, be sure to flag it—the video will be reviewed and removed by YouTube moderators.
