A set of jargon-busting guides that teach children about their rights on social media sites has been published.
Children’s Commissioner Anne Longfield said Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp and YouTube had “not done enough” to clarify their policies.
She simplified the websites’ terms and conditions with privacy law firm Schillings.
But Instagram said the simplified version of its terms contained “a number of inaccuracies”.
The slimmed-down guides are a response to the Commissioner’s Growing Up Digital report, which found that most children do not understand the agreements they sign when they create social media accounts.
All the sites require children to be over 13 to create an account.
