Leaders call for protecting children online

Internet giants joined several world leaders to issue a global call to better protect children online. The appeal was initiated by France and the U.N. child protection agency UNICEF.

The document brings that “in the digital environment, children can come across harmful and violent content and manipulation of information. Just like adults, children have rights to privacy, which should be respected.”

The text also listed “threats amplified by technology” including cyberbullying, sexual abuse, prostitution, human trafficking, sexual and gender-based violence, or violent online radicalization.

According to Associated Press reports, signatories include Amazon, Google, YouTube, Meta, Microsoft, Snapchat, and Twitter. The call has also been joined by 8 nations including France, Italy, Argentina, Jordan, and Morocco — although not the United States.
