Instagram Rolls Out Measures for Child Safety and Allows Parents to Set Screen Time

Instagram has roll out a slew of measures to boost the safety of young users on its Instagram platform, the latest firm to address the issue.

Campaigners have long criticised Instagram for failing to protect teenagers from harmful content, and the popularity of Instagram with young people has place it firmly in the firing line.

Meta said parents and guardians would be able to set time limits on children’s scrolling on Instagram.

And young users would now see nudges encouraging them to look at other subjects if they are spending too much time looking at content about a single topic.

Clotilde Briend of Meta Said during a media briefing :

“It is crucial for us to develop tools that respect the privacy and autonomy of young people while involving parents in the experience,”.

Meta has consistently denied the claims but has since face a series of grillings in US Congress and suggestions that regulation could be on the way.

Other apps, like TikTok, have also criticise over fears young people were finding it hard to tear themselves away from the content.

Last week, TikTok announce young people would get nudges to remind them to take a break from scrolling, similar to an Instagram feature that has already roll out.

Meta also announce new measures for its virtual reality headsets.

Parents and guardians will be able to block apps, view what their child is looking at on another device and see how long their child is spending with their headset on.
