Downloading Kids Apps is Made Difficult by iTunes App Store

Children are happier than their parents when it comes to downloading apps on their mobile phones.  In a recent poll conducted by the NPD group, it says that children have free access on gaming apps which averages about 12 while there are 88 free apps directed on their mobile from the iTunes App Store. Parents must be wary that free downloads of gaming apps should be monitored because some games are not child friendly.  Instead of educating your kids with those game apps, they will be exposed to violence and sexually explicit videos not to mention their addiction to games.

The government initiated a move to protect your children below 13 years of age from violence and cyber bully through COPPA or the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.  As a response to the growing clamor on child protection, Apple’s App Store Review Guidelines has been updated in consonance with the COPPA guidelines by adding four categories. Under the Kids Apps, it emphasizes the importance of giving the proper apps for children.

As mandated by COPPA, your children’s personal information must be included in the four categories such as user name, location of their residence, photos, video or audio file of your kid’s voice.  COPPA pointed out that private policy should strictly be implemented in accordance with your kids’ age. Parental consent is required for any transaction made by children for purchasing or downloading apps.

It also requires that Apple should comply with the privacy requirements for your kids when they ask their birthdays, personal information, and persistent identifiers.  Kids are prohibited from posting advertisement and if there is, it should be appropriate to their age. However, parents must not depend entirely on the new rules; instead they have to do their own part by monitoring what their kids are downloading.

Parental controls on their iPod Touch or iPhone can be helpful in preventing your kids from exposure to harmful game apps.  Your children must ask permission from you before they can download the app.  Have a password for each downloads by going to the Settings then click General, then click Restrictions and then go to Enable Restrictions and the last is to turn off the Installing Apps.
