  • How YouTube Is Endangering Your Children

However, it will continue recommending many videos with children because an all-out ban would hurt creators who rely on the recommendation engine to generate views, according to YouTube.

Kaiser's research was featured in the New York Times with the headline "On YouTube's Digital Playground, An Open Gate For Pedophiles". All the accounts of children below 13 years of age are deleted with immediate effect. They added that in the first quarter of 2019, they removed more than 800,000 videos for violations of our child safety policies.

YouTube has restricted "younger minors" from live streaming unless there is an adult present. Channels who receive a single community guidelines strikes for breaking YouTube's rules are unable to stream, though it is unclear if that punishment will be given to those unaccompanied minor streamers. The video streaming platform has indeed taken security seriously, which is highlighted by the fact that it has been sharing several of its reports with the NCMEC, which has, in turn, resulted in a number of law enforcement investigations.

To help further facilitate this participation from its younger users, YouTube released a feature in 2015 called YouTube Kids, a separate section of the site serving specifically as a place for minors to safely explore their interests on the platform.

Classifiers have also been launched, which help YouTube sort the good content from bad, which is then removed. A young child can still use the YouTube Live app to immediately broadcast to strangers who may have malicious or predatory intent.

Each video might appear innocent on its own, a home movie of a kid in a two-piece swimsuit or a nightie. It has also disabled comments on tens of millions of videos featuring minors on its platform.

Classifiers have been employed here as well, and this has boosted the deleting of comments by nearly two times. The company published a blog post detailing its most recent list of updates-it will ban minors from live streaming unless they are clearly accompanied by an adult, disable comments on videos featuring minors, and expand its definition of "borderline content" to include "videos featuring minors in risky situations" (YouTube limits the recommendation of this content).

"We also enforce a strong set of policies to protect minors on our platform, including those that prohibit exploiting minors, encouraging unsafe or inappropriate behaviours, and aggregating videos of minors in potentially exploitative ways", it said.
