Comment Deadline:

November 16, 2023


The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) seeks broad input and feedback from stakeholders on current and emerging risks of health (including mental health), safety, and privacy harms to minors arising from use of online platforms. Preventing and mitigating any adverse health effects from use of online platforms on minors, while preserving benefits such platforms have on minors' health and well-being, are critical priorities of the Biden-Harris Administration. This request also seeks information about potential health, safety and privacy benefits stemming from minors' use of online platforms. Finally, we seek input on current and future industry efforts to mitigate harms and promote the health, safety and well-being of minors who access these online platforms. The data gathered through this process will be used to inform the Biden-Harris Administration's work to advance the health, safety, and privacy of minors. Comments are due by November 16, 2023.
