BILL FILED IN TENNESSEE REQUIRING MINORS TO GET PARENTAL CONSENT TO USE SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT

Tennessee State Representative William Lamberth has filed a bill requiring anyone under 18 to get parental or guardian consent to use a social media account.

House Bill 1891 is called the Protecting Children from Social Media Act.

If passed into law, it would require all social media companies, including TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, to verify the ages of anyone who creates or has already created an account.

If that person is under 18, the bill would require those companies to verify the express parental consent for the minor to become or continue as an account holder.

If verification is not done, the bill would require the social media company to prevent that minor from gaining access to their account unless they want to delete it.
