Stringent Government Regulation Regarding Child Digital Safety to Augment Growth

The formulation of Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) 1998 ensures that the parents are entitled to have access to data regarding their child’s online activities. The rule was put into effect to prevent online crimes such as child abuse, cyber bullying, and sexual assault amongst children. According to the BBC, more than 10,000 online child sex abuse cases were registered in 2020 in the United Kingdom. The increasing incidence of child abuse has led the government to implement stringent child safety regulations to ensure child safety on online platforms. This is expected to contribute to the growth of the global market for parental control software in the forthcoming years.
