Meta’s Legal Battle Over Youth Privacy Rages On

The ongoing legal skirmish between Meta Platforms Inc. and a coalition of more than 30 state attorneys general has reignited concerns over the protection of minors online. The lawsuit alleges that Meta deliberately enticed children to use Instagram and Facebook, leveraging addictive features and thereby harming their mental well-being. Moreover, Meta is accused of breaching federal children’s privacy laws by not obtaining parental consent for users under 13.

Meta, the case argues, ineffectively used age-gating methods to deter underage users, while evidence suggests many under-13 users were still accessing the platforms. The prosecutors propose that Meta could have implemented alternative age-verification methods, like requiring student IDs during sign-up, to prevent this issue.
Amid growing pressures for platforms to safeguard young users from damaging content, the debate over the effectiveness and privacy implications of age-verification technologies, including biometric methods, has intensified. Tech and civil liberties groups have raised concerns about the invasive nature of these technologies and potential breaches of First Amendment rights, leading to a series of legal challenges across the United States.
While the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) does not mandate platforms to verify users’ ages, it does require parental consent for data collection from users under 13 if the platforms have actual knowledge of their presence. The attorneys general contend that Meta, while publicly claiming to disallow users under 13, in practice, often failed to enforce this policy, thus ignoring its responsibility to secure parental consent.

The recent actions against Meta sidestep legislative processes and place the onus on federal courts to address this modern dilemma. Critics worry about the privacy risks associated with gathering more intrusive forms of identification, such as student IDs, and the storage and usage of biometric data.
As the Federal Trade Commission mulls over allowing age-estimation tools under COPPA, the outcome of Meta’s lawsuit could set a precedent, forcing the hand of social media giants to enhance their age-gating measures or to adopt verifiable parental consent mechanisms. This shift has already begun to take shape, with Instagram piloting new age-verification methods.

This pivotal case, though centered on Meta, signals a warning to all digital platforms: the landscape of online child protection is evolving, and any service catering to potentially underage users must rigorously evaluate its age-verification procedures to stay ahead of the curve and legal scrutiny.
