YouTube To Restrict Inappropriate Kid-Targeting Videos

The policy change follows revelations that YouTube is pointing kids to thousands of disturbing videos involving kids characters and that some of those videos are making their way to YouTube Kids. Turns out, despite her using the YouTube Kids app on the iPad, he ended up watching a 10-minute video called "Paw Patrol Babies Pretend to Die Suicide by Anabelle Hypnotized", where crude versions of "Paw Patrol" characters die in various ways.

The policy update is YouTube's second move this year to discourage the proliferation of disturbing videos featuring family-friendly characters.

YouTube is trying to stop children from being tricked into watching horrifying videos, it has said.

"The YouTube team is made up of parents who are committed to improving our apps and getting this right".

The first line of defense for YouTube Kids are algorithmic filters.

Age-restricted videos can't be seen by users who aren't logged in, or by those who have entered their age as below 18 on both the site and the app. No age-restricted content is allowed in the YouTube Kids app at all. If something slips through the net, it can again be flagged and reviewed by a specialist YouTube Kids team of moderators. "If you find a video that you think should not be in the app, you can block it and flag it for review". There is a place, the company is arguing, for satire about Peppa Pig drinking bleach, however distasteful you might find it. And, the company is willing to forgo additional ad revenue - and there is a lot of money flowing through this segment of the industry - if that's what it takes to ensure YouTube Kids feels like a safe experience for families.
