How do I grant my child permission to add comments,rate and tag titles in the catalog?
Last Updated: Jun 20, 2018 Views: 41

The Child Account Permissions feature in the catalog is related to the social aspects.  Children under the age of 13 are not allowed to display their real names, nor can they type their own usernames, enter comments or add other kinds of content that require typing, since these could be used inappropriately. This brings the catalog into compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Find more information on COPPA here.
