Kids Being “Datafied from Birth”, England Children Commissioner Warns

Anne Longfield, the Children’s Commissioner for England, recently warned that children are being “datafied from birth” and urged tech giants and manufacturers to be more transparent about their data collection policies.

A recent report with research from Sonia Livingstone likened children to canaries in a coal mine for the society as they are the first to encounter the risks of new technology before adults are even made aware.

Longfield added that manufacturers of apps, toys and other products used by children have to stop filling them with trackers and write terms and conditions in language that children understand.
