U.S. Sens. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., introduced the Children and Teens’ Online Privacy Protection Act, which aims to modernize provisions of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. The bill prohibits collection of data from users ages 13 to 15 without consent, creates an "Eraser Button" on websites to delete children's data and adds a children's privacy unit to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. Markey said Congress must "swiftly put in place strict safeguards that stop" companies from "tracking young people at every turn in the online ecosystem."
