The Verge reports Epic Games will offer its parent verification services free for all developers in order to make it easier to design games that protect children's privacy and safety. Last September, the video game publisher acquired safe kidtech company SuperAwesome, enabling it to implement its Kids Web Services program. The acquisition allows developers to "verify the identity of parents or guardians when granting their children permission to use features that collect personal information," the report states. Epic also said the system "minimizes personal data processing, since the parent or guardian is only providing their verification details once."
